Madam Selma Ashipala-Musavyi, Namiba High Commissioner to Ghana has indicated that Namibia is a country with numerous investment opportunities for the global investor community to take advantage of.
Therefore Ghanaian investors should seize this opportunity to look towards Namibia.
“Namibia is competitive in the areas of agriculture, tourism, mining and industrial investments, therefore Ghanaian businesses should visit Namibia to expand their businesses to give true meaning to AFTCA.”
A statement copied to the Ghana News Agency in Accra on Tuesday said Madam Ashipala-Musavyi was speaking during a courtesy call on the Overlord of Dagbon, Ya-Na Abukari II at the Gbewaa Palace in Yendi.
The High Commissioner, who is on a 3-day working visit to the Northern Region, advocated the need for Africa economies to integrate by doing business among itself, to spur the continent’s economic growth in line with the objectives of AfCTA.
She informed the Ya-Na of the efforts Namibia was making to transform its economy and improve the living standards of its citizenry.
According to her, Namibia exported beef to the United States and the European Union, and would soon be doing so with Ghana.
She said trading between countries in Africa at every level, both at the governments and private sector would improve relations between countries in the continent and also inculcate the values of mutual respect among Africans.
She therefore reminded Africa to understand that the continent could only develop through its own efforts.
The statement said Madam Ashipala-Musavyi encouraged tourists in Ghana to explore Namibia since the country had better tourist attractions.
Ya-Na Abukari Mahama II according to the statement welcomed Madam Ashipala-Musavyi to Dagbon and commended the High Commissioner for coming to the Gbewaa Palace to share her experience with him and also deepen the Ghana-Namibia relations.
It said the Ya-Na assured Madam Ashipala-Musavyi of the readiness of the Gbewaa Palace and Office of the Ya-Na to support her to work to promote the ties between Ghana and Namibia during her tenure.
The three-day visit afforded the High Commissioner with the opportunity to visit the smock weavers in Yendi, a guinea fowl farm and a women’s shea-nuts processing center in the Kumbungu District of the Northern Region.
