Namibia was the first country in Africa to host the just-ended World Indigenous Business Forum (WIBF). The event provided a unique opportunity for delegates to develop partnerships and to form strategic alliances with global leaders.
The line-up comprised dedicated panel presentations by Chiefs, Tribal Leaders, Kings and Queens. (From left to right) Hon.
