Brazil would like to deepen its cooperation and economic and trade relations with Namibia. 

Its Ambassador to Namibia, Vivian Loss Sanmartin, says possibilities to increase trade between Brazil and Namibia are almost without a limit.

She was speaking to nbc News against the backdrop of the visit of a 10-member business community delegation from Brazil to Namibia.

The delegation is in Namibia for a weeklong visit to explore business and investment opportunities. 

Business leaders have been working on potential projects in agriculture, packaging, health, and cosmetics for some two years now. 

But for Brazil, more needs to be done to increase trade volumes between the two countries, which are neighbours across the Atlantic Ocean.

While fish and salt, for instance, can be exported to Brazil, there are many other possible areas for trade between the two countries.

Last year, Brazil hosted the first cinematographic workshop, where leading directors from the south American country shared skills and ideas with Namibian creatives.

Africa currently enjoys a special focus in Brazil, with President Lula da Silva a passionate promoter of cordial relations with the continent.
