Namibia, China strengthen bilateral, economic and trade ties

Namibia and delegates from China this week held a business seminar held in Windhoek to boost bilateral economic and trade cooperation between the two countries.

The seminar offered local businesses an opportunity to engage their counterparts in interactive business information sessions. The two countries also signed a new memorandum of understanding for trade at the opening of the event.

“This platform was created for the benefit of business people from both countries, to learn from each other and most importantly create contacts and learn about new businesses they can venture into,” Acting chief executive officer of the Namibia Chamber of Commerce and Industry (NCCI) Charity Mwiya said at the seminar.

Mwiya added that by strengthening Namibia-China relations, exchange of visits at different levels of government and businesses will continue.

Speaking at the occasion, the vice chairperson of China Council of Promotion of International Trade (CCPIT) Zang Wei said trade relation between the two countries have developed, thereby increasing economic activities between the two countries.

“We have seen good trade and an increase in volumes of trade over the years. As partners there is still a lot that we need to work on, especially in the agricultural sector. Namibia has already taken few examples from China and implemented successfully. Chinese people are ready to help in any way that they can and I trust that Namibian people are also,” Wei added.
