Equally to explore opportunities with development agencies financing large-scale projects across Africa.
Namibia, it said will participate under the sub-theme, ‘Namibia, Land of many opportunities’, noting that the events will further present the Namibian companies an opportunity to showcase their products and services to potential customers, while at the same time affording them an opportunity to market investment and bankable projects.
