“There is a need for all companies operating to become members and create value for Team Namibia and its brand – the advantages are infinite – not only are we promoting and enhancing pride in Namibian-produced goods – but we are also advocating for economic growth – a noble idea we all subscribe to. We can only achieve that if we collectively as the brand Namibia work together through platforms such as Team Namibia.” he said.
Team Namibia’s formation was spearheaded by the Namibia Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the Namibia Manufacturers’ Association in 2003 – of which MTC was a founder sponsor.
