Find Industry and Manufacturing expertise in Namibia
Manufacturing contributes 12% of Namibia’s GDP. The main manufacturing activities are light industry-based and directly link with the country’s agricultural sector. They include meatpacking, fish processing and dairy processing. Fish processing is a fast developing sector in terms of employment growth and income. The fish industry as a whole is six times the size of what it was at independence in 1990. Walvis Bay Export Processing Zone was set up in the 1990s to create a tax-free commercial environment for manufacturers and exporters.
