A German- Namibia Business Seminar was held on Thursday where Roundtable Sector Sessions as well as back to back meetings are took place. The Business Seminars were also addressed by the Deputy Minister of Industrialisation, Trade and SME Development Hon.

James Sankwasa who provided highlights on some of Namibia’s infrastructure projects being supported by the German Government.
The German delegation on Friday 15 April will have a site visit to Namibia Breweries as well.
