Prime Minister Saara Kuugongelwa-Amadhila is urging a shift away from dependence on imports in Namibia, emphasising the importance of supporting locally made products to stimulate economic growth.

Kuugongelwa-Amadhila, who addressed the attendees at the 10th Jubilee Opuwo Trade Fair, says purchasing local products plays a crucial role in supporting local enterprise development, promoting job creation, and driving economic expansion.

According to the Prime Minister, relying heavily on imports exposes Namibia to potential shocks originating from external factors.
