Namibia could soon allow the submission of tenders online, and bidders would receive their awards in the same way.

Prime Minister Saara Kuugongelwa-Amadhila revealed this during a courtesy call by an Indian investment and trade delegation at State House.

The move to allow online tendering is part of the country's broader objective to embrace the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

The Namibian government hopes that the automation of the tendering system and other services will further help eliminate unethical conduct.

The visit by the Indian investment and trade delegation is to reaffirm the existing areas of cooperation between the two countries while exploring new ones.

Of interest are mining as well as information and communication technology.

Namibia and India have formal agreements in health, education, geology, mineral resources, and defence.
