The Namibian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (NCCI) is making arrangements for Namibian small and medium enterprises who wish to travel for the trade mission to Zambia.

The trade mission to Zambia takes place from 3 to 9 August, and it is aimed at “deepening cooperation to enhance bilateral trade” between the two countries.

In a letter sent out to the local business community, NCCI’s officer for SME development Ms Antonia Dumbu-Udeh said that SMEs that are interested to participate in the Trade Mission to Zambia but feel cannot afford the flight costs will be provided with an opportunity to travel by bus.

“Due to popular demand, the NCCI has made arrangements to hire a bus for SMEs ready to travel by road, as well arrangements have been made with the relevant authorities to ensure your smooth travel,” Dumbu-Udeh stated.

“This is an exciting deal; we have made all efforts to ensure you are not left out of this mission which promises to provide you exciting opportunities for business linkages, exposure and much more.”

The trade mission to Zambia is aimed at addressing issues affecting trade between the two countries, and to explore modalities to deepen cooperation in trade and to accelerate the implementation of joint-export promotion efforts in key priority sectors.

The mission will feature the 95th Zambia Agricultural & Commercial Show, the Zambia-Namibia Business Forum, Industry Visits, and Business to Business Meetings, Networking and other engagements.
