The agency was also involved and provided expertise with the drafting of Namibia’s Logistics Hub Master Plan in 2014, which took a year to complete.
“The technical cooperation and assistance received from JICA has had a significant impact on the implementation of Namibia’s Logistics Hub Master Plan,” said Gilbert Boois, SDI Manager at WBCG.
The JICA team assisted in setting up two working groups, the Logistics Hub Centre and Integrated Border Management, and gave input towards the Marketing Strategy and Capacity Building working groups.
WBCG undertook several studies during this period, where JICA further offered in-depth analysis on the surveys conducted and the reports presented by the various consultants.
“The value of their contribution cannot be understated. The industry has been greatly capacitated through our engagement with the JICA team. Moreover, consulting on findings and receiving quality feedback allowed us to make informed decisions on important aspects of the Logistics Hub Project,” Boois concluded.
The JICA team returned to Japan after three years of working on the project.
