WINDHOEK: Minister of Trade and Industry Calle Schlettwein has called on his staff members to work as a team in order to perform effectively, accurately and timeously.
Addressing his ministry’s employees yesterday, Schlettwein saidtey should put themselves in the position of those who stand on the other side of the counter and act in a predictable and transparent manner.
He also called on them to avoid ‘corridor talk and rumour-mongering’ with a view to keeping a positive outlook and to be keenly aware of how the public perceive them.
Schlettwein said the staff should exercise patience with all clients and stakeholders at all times.
He said the Trade Ministry is responsible for spearheading sectors which are not only wide in scope, but also critical for the realisation of Namibia’s national socio-economic development goals.
