Yvonne Dausab, the Minister of Justice, called for a united effort to promote sustainable business practices, emphasising the importance of inclusive economic growth in the burgeoning sectors of green hydrogen, oil, and gas.

Dausab, who spoke on behalf of Lucia Iipumbu, the Minister of Industrialisation and Trade, at the official opening of the Lüderitz Crayfish Festival Business Conference, pointed to significant opportunities emerging in Lüderitz and the immediate surrounding areas.

She stressed the need for a deliberate approach to developing a renewed entrepreneurial culture that prioritises sustainability.

“The conference serves as a crucial platform for exploring avenues for sustainable economic growth. It’s about ensuring that our economic development is not only robust but also inclusive and benefits all members of society,” Dausab stated.

She reiterated the government’s dedication to creating an environment conducive to business success that simultaneously protects Namibia’s natural landscapes.

“This balance is crucial for the long-term health of both the economy and the environment,” she added.

!Nami#Nus Constituency councillor, Suzan Ndjaleka, called for strengthened collaborations between the government and the private sector.

Ndjaleka stressed the importance of ensuring that local emerging businesses in Lüderitz can tap into and benefit from the expected economic boom.

The councillor added that the Lüderitz Crayfish Festival is more than a cultural celebration and that the business conference serves as a crucial meeting point for discussing strategic economic initiatives.

“The insights shared at this conference are set to influence the trajectory of its development for years to come,” Ndjaleka said.
