Russian President visit to boost trade with Namibia

18 june 2009

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev will make his first ever state visit to the southern African country of Namibia from the 24th to the 26th of June that is expected to boost trade relations, a government official has told the media.
The President who was invited by his Namibian counterpart Hifikepunye Pohamba would be accompanied by a delegation of about 400 people.
Namibia’s Information and Communication permanent secretary Mbeuta Ua Ndjarakana said the Russia had been providing continuous support to Namibia through scholarships and exchange visits.  
“There, however, remains a mutually recognized need by the two governments to further enhance and deepen the cooperation in such areas as business-to-business links, promotion of joint ventures and encouragement of trade and general economic activities,” he said.
The 3rd session of the Namibia - Russia inter-governmental Commission on Trade and Economic Cooperation held in Namibia last year underscored the need to improve and expand bilateral cooperation to actively promote economic growth and social development in both countries.
Cooperation in mining, energy, agriculture, trade and investment among other things had been discussed though nothing much had materialized to date.
Namibia is rich in mineral resources such uranium and diamonds.
