      THE northern business community has been encourged to participate in the Expo 2020 Dubai scheduled for next year to showcase their businesses and attract foreign investors.

      The expo is scheduled to take place in the United Arab Emirates from 01 October to 31 March 2021.

      Simon Majumo, the commissioner general of the World Expo 2020 Dubai met members of the Namibia Chamber of Commerce and Industry (NCCI) northern branch at Oshakati this week.

      He said a govrnment decision for Namibia to participate in Expo 2020 Dubai is important for the country to promote investment and trade as well as to secure new markets for local products.

      “It is of great benefit for the people of Namibia and not just the companies taking part. One of the purposes of participating in the expo is to share ideas and attract foreign investors. A total of 192 countries are expected to participate in the expo and the organisers have developed a programme centred on themes for countries to partake.

      “Cross-cutting issues have been identified from social to economy and Namibia's programme is aligned to the expo programme,” he said.

      The focus areas of Namibia's participation include renewable energy, mining, tourism, education and trade and investment.

      Majumo said some of the benefits of the expo are enhancing awareness of the country's national brand and attracting foreign investment.

      “Other benefits include increased use of Namibian ports and establishing partnerships in research, innovation and technology. A positive impact on the country's international economic outlook and creating new markets for Namibian products,” he said.
