Message from the Ambassador

Namibia’s political stability, clean environment and excellent infrastructure make it an appealing location for American businesses seeking access to southern Africa.  With world-class port facilities at Walvis Bay and a steadily improving road and rail network, Namibia is poised to become an alternative gateway to South Africa, Angola, Botswana, Zambia and Zimbabwe.  Resource-rich Namibia also offers attractive opportunities in its own right, from its mineral wealth to its elite position as the only African country approved to export beef to the United States. Our Embassy’s Economic and Commercial team and I stand ready to advise and assist you in exploring and understanding the business environment and economic opportunities available in Namibia.  I encourage you to browse through our website and consider the many services offered in support of increasing trade and collaboration between Namibia and the United States of America.
