Nandi-Ndaitwah said this today addressing members of the Diplomatic Corps accredited to Namibia at the annual diplomatic briefing.

“For Namibia, these in-and-outbound trade missions took place to countries such as Angola, Ghana, India, Nigeria, Qatar, Spain, Switzerland and the United States of America, to mention but a few. We look forward to continue working with you, Your Excellencies on the trajectory of further strengthening economic ties between Namibia and your respective countries and how we can link up our private sectors who are our partners in the realization of AU Agenda 2063 and the UN Sustainable Goals.

“Accordingly, the Ministry continues to value all our bilateral partnerships. Since our last

Diplomatic Briefing, we held several successful bilateral meetings with your respective countries,” said Nandi-Ndaitwah.

In addition to trade missions undertaken outside the country, Nandi-Ndaitwah said the ministry held diplomatic consultations with Angola, Finland, Spain, South Africa and Zimbabwe.

“It must be underscored that, meetings between yourselves and different Namibian Ministers, Senior Government Officials and myself, must continue to strengthen our cordial relationship. The importance of regular dialogue with you on issues of common interest to Namibia and your respective countries and organisations must therefore, remain our priority to the course of our common assignment,” she added.
