About the publication

"New Markets - New Opportunities: Namibia" is a joint publication by Germany Trade & Invest (GTAI), the Southern African-German Chamber of Commerce and Industry (AHK) and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, published in March 2021. In the following we have compiled important aspects from the publication.

Economic structure and prospects

Namibia's economy is particularly modern and market oriented. Important sectors of its economy are mining and industry. The most important export commodity is diamonds, but uranium, gold and zinc are also mined.

Namibia is well connected to neighboring countries through the port of Walvis Bay, which is centrally located in a north-south direction, and various transport corridors. And the potential in tourism is far from exhausted. In addition, the abundance of fish along Namibia's coast offers further opportunities for industry to expand.

These industries are particularly attractive for market entry in Namibia:

  • (Renewable) Energy
  • Agriculture and food processing
  • Transport and logistics
  • Waste Management
  • Raw materials and mining

Investment climate

Namibia offers convincing political stability and institutional strengths that guarantee a high degree of legal security. The financial system is well established, and there is free capital transfer and duty-free access to the important South African market. The government supports investors with subsidy programmes as well as tax and other benefits. You can find out more about the economic prospects on the GTAI country page.
