WINDHOEK; Deputy Minister of Trade of Industry, Tjekero Tweya is expected to table a motion on the long-awaited Namibian Industrial Policy in the National Assembly on Tuesday next week.
Tweya yesterday gave notice of his intentions before the August House to consider and approve the Namibian Industrial Policy by the Ministry of Trade and Industry.
The vision of the Namibian Industrial Policy is anchored in Vision 2030 – that Namibia be characterised as a prosperous and industrialised country, developed by her human resources, enjoying peace, harmony and political stability.
According to the Namibian Industrial Policy document availed to Members of Parliament and the media yesterday, as an industrialised nation, Namibia should be characterised by a high level of household income, based on purchasing power parity exchange rates that take into account that one United States (US) dollar at market-based exchange rates does not have the same value in all countries.
It further said that Namibia should be characterised by a more equitable distribution income, as reflected in the reduction of the Gini coefficient, while at the same time growing the size of the Namibian economy.
