WINDHOEK, 14 OCT (NAMPA) - Namibia's diplomatic relations with Spain can be described as excellent as Spain was one of the first countries to open an embassy in Namibia.
This was said by the Spanish Ambassador to Namibia, Concepcion Figueroa Santos here on Monday, when her country's national day was commemorated at the Spanish Embassy in Windhoek.
Spain’s national day on 12 October commemorates the anniversary of explorer Christopher Columbus's first arrival in the Americas in 1492.
Santos said the two countries have come a long way and enjoy goodwill and close cooperation.
“These excellent bilateral relations have been further strengthened in increasing economic cooperation and cultural exchanges between the two countries,” she said.
She assured the Namibian government that Spain will continue their financial and technical assistance for the development of education, training, science and technology in Namibia.
The Ambassador also gave her assurance that Spanish companies will continue investing in Namibia, especially in the fishing sector.
Lüderitz-based National Fishing Corporation of Namibia (Fishcor) in April and May this year acquired two fishing vessels from Spain at a cost of N.dollars 80 million.
