Trade and Investment in Namibia

A 1991 Namibia postage stamp with an illustration of a zinc mining operation.The Ministry of Industrialization, Trade and SME Development, is tasked with spearheading trade and industrial development in Namibia, and perhaps more important, to promote and attract local and foreign investment. Appropriate mechanisms have also been established in order to pursue the policy of economic diplomacy.

Namibia offers investment opportunities in various areas and sectors. The country boasts an impressive rating as a competitive investment location. Besides its continuous ranking among the five most competitive economies in Africa by the World Economic Forum, Namibia also achieved a positive rating from the 2019 Fitch Ratings and a “BB+” Category Country Risk rating by the London-based Economic Intelligence Unit, the highest score achieved in sub-Saharan Africa.

If you are looking for investment opportunities, or wish to develop strategic partnerships in Namibia, or outsource products or services, or looking for suppliers or manufacturers, the Mission stands ready to assist by providing you relevant information and linking you up with potential counterparts in Namibia.
