Swaziland Looks to Namibia as Fishing Sector Example

01 August 2012

SWAZILAND and NAMIBIA - Swaziland's Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Mtiti Fakudze, heaped praise on Namibia's development in the fishing sector and the Ohorongo cement plant at Otavi.

"Namibia is doing a wonderful job at its Walvis Bay harbour (Namport). I am also impressed by the cement plant they have set up as well," he said on Saturday at State House during the farewell ceremony for His Majesty, King Mswati III and his delegation, who have been on an official state visit to Namibia since last Tuesday before the royal party jetted out on Saturday, reports NewEra.

"Namibia is so blessed," he said, adding that they were now going to concentrate on specific areas of cooperation with Namibia, including agriculture, tourism, arts and culture and mining.

President Hifikepunye Pohamba called upon the private sectors of both countries to join in ongoing efforts to expand economic co-operation. King Mswati III said Swaziland has embarked on developing its freshwater fishing industry by encouraging people at grassroots level to generate income for themselves and is looking forward to benefit from Namibia's vast experience in that area.
