With over one million tourists per annum, Namibia is known globally as a top ecotourism destination and it’s a sector that’s growing as evidenced by the 5% year on year growth in international traffic into Namibia.
This year’s Consultations on Development Cooperation took place on the 7 and 8 of February in Windhoek. During the consultations, both parties confirmed the three focal areas of the joint cooperation: management of natural resources, sustainable economic development and transport. Among further fields of cooperation outside the focal areas, that were discussed during the consultations, are water, energy and sports. The main goal of German-Namibian development cooperation remains the fight against poverty and inequality in Namibia.
