WINDHOEK, 25 SEP (NAMPA) – The Namibia Chamber of Commerce and Industry (NCCI) will host the 7th Annual Swakopmund International Trade Expo in Swakopmund from 09 to 12 October 2019.
The expo will be held under the theme ‘Promoting intra-regional trade and economic integration’ and is aimed at supporting and driving targeted discussions around the economic trajectory of the country to lead to greater economic inclusion.
NCCI Chief Executive Officer, Charity Mwiya said during the launch of the expo here on Wednesday, the country has been experiencing immense socio-economic challenges, which has contributed to the NCCI’s resolve to create opportunities for private sector business and drive discussions around constraints of growth in specific sectors.
High-level discussions will be centred on enhancing the role of the private sector in economic development, she said.
Exhibitions from various sectors will be presented including housing, construction, retail, tourism, mining and renewable energy, agriculture, fishing and logistics transport.
