According to Jario, the council will meet on Tuesday in Windhoek and introduce the members who are on board.
The purpose of the Turkey-Namibia Business Council will be to promote trade and cross-border investment between the two countries, contribute to the industrial and technological collaboration between Namibian and Turkish companies and institutions, and facilitate the participation in trade fairs and exhibition, she added.
