Erongo Governor emphasizes region's economic significance and strategic location


Erongo Governor Neville Andre says the region is strategically located and remains an active hub of economic development as it houses key industries such as the fishing sector, mining, logistics, and transport, as well as tourism.

Andre said this during a courtesy visit by the Brazilian business delegation to his office.

Andre says if trade agreements between the two countries are successful, it will help address the country's high rate of youth unemployment and an unskilled workforce. 

MPs call for the reduction of seal population to protect fish stock


The increase in the number of seals in the population threatens the fish species in the Namibian waters, hence the need to control them.

Motivating his motion in the National Assembly, RDP leader Mike Kavekotora says a balance needs to be found to protect fish species for human consumption and the conservation of seals.

Situated on the southwestern coast of Africa along the Atlantic Ocean, Namibia is one of the countries endowed with aquatic resources, predominantly fish of various types.
