WALVIS BAY: The visiting Togolese president today said the Port of Lome in Togo will consider the possibility of joining forces with the Namibia Ports Authority (Namport) in a partnership agreement.
President Faure Essozimna Gnassingbe said this through an interpreter when he visited Namport here today, adding that the advantage of Namport is that it operates on a corridor system and the two countries need to join forces.
He made the statement after Namport’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Bisey Uirab proposed that the two ports enter into a partnership.
Uirab told the Togolese president during a presentation session that there is a lot to share, such as experiences and strategies between the two ports.
Gnassingbe said sea transport has become an important means of conveying cargo, adding that economic growth in the Sub-Saharan region is constantly increasing, as Africa is trading a great deal with the rest of the world.
WINDHOEK; Agricultural cooperative Agra has been contracted by the Millennium Challenge Account Namibia (MCA-N) to assess rangeland conditions in the Kunene, Omusati, Oshana, Oshikoto, Ohangwena and Kavango regions.
The process started on 20 September, and is coming to an end on 31 October this year.
In a media statement issued today, MCA-Namibia Senior Manager: Public Outreach Ralph Hofelein called on farmers and residents in these areas to give their full support during the assessment process.
