This message is from His Excellency Dr Hage G. Geingob, President of the Republic of Namibia

On behalf of the Government and people of the Republic of Namibia, and indeed on my behalf, it gives me great pleasure to warmly welcome you to “the Land of the Brave”.

I bring greetings from a land of contrasting natural beauty, characterized by the endless sand dunes of the oldest desert, “the Namib Desert” along the coastline where it meets the deep blue sea waters of the South Atlantic Ocean, to the tropical wetlands of the North Eastern Regions, and the gaming of Etosha National Park where the “Big Five” reside.

Namibia is a unique destination that offers classic landscapes, abundant biodiversity and bountiful unspoiled wildlife, rich cultural diversity, with a diverse range of flora and fauna, giving tourists an unforgettable experience.

Namibia, which has a competitive economy, characterised by modern infrastructure and an array of excellent investment opportunities across all sectors of the economy, is the gateway to the Southern African Development Community (SADC). Major sectors for possible investment include agriculture, tourism, mining, manufacturing, fishing and banking, as set out in its Vision 2030, which is a national policy aimed at achieving our developmental aspirations.

The country enjoys one of the continent’s most peaceful and politically stable environments, due to our Government’s commitment to the principles of democracy, effective governance, the rule of law, and human rights which are in line with the Commonwealth’s values and principles.

Namibia stands ready to welcome our compatriots across the Commonwealth as potential investors as well as tourists. Let Namibia be your first choice of destination.
