The Namibia Chamber of Commerce and Industry (NCCI) recently held its annual gala dinner as a fundraiser for the sixth Swakopmund international trade expo (SWAiTEX) at the Dome in Swakopmund.

Speaking at the event, the councillor for the Swakopmund constituency, Juuso Kambueshe, who is also the expo’s patron, said that SWAiTEX is an expo like no other as it seeks to provide the global marketing segment to Namibia.

“We seek to make the world a global trading village. Our country has many ambassadors abroad as well as hosting various embassies. Various consulates you see in Windhoek is a sign that those countries investing in Namibia with infrastructure of international standard have faith in our political stability as well as our economic growth ratio.

“We bring the international trading community to your doorsteps . . . we pledge that these opportunities will yield much more lasting relationships than once off marketing seasonal booms we currently experience,” said Kambueshe.

The 2018 SWAiTEX will be held under the theme “Local economic growth through international trade”. Kambueshe added that the expo provides prospects in different sectors.

“Our opportunity we are presenting to the world is that we see an opportunity in the tourism industry and we invite the world to come and see a people united in diversity.

“We aim to celebrate our happy nation’s culture and seek to display that to the world. Swakopmund is not just a holiday destination, but an event destination too, we are sharing with the world that sports tourism is present in Swakopmund and of course the spin-offs are that we have a unique geographical advantage, a God given blessing,” he said.

At the gala dinner, an amount of N$800 000 was raised through pledges from corporate entities like Erongo RED, the Swakopmund municipality, Standard Bank Namibia, First National Bank Namibia and Namport.

The 2018 SWAiTEX will take place at the Dome from 10 to 14 October.
