Transport Events in collaboration with the Namibia Ports Authority (Namport) hosts a webinar, under the theme Southern African Development Community – enhancing economic collaboration in the new normal, on Thursday (8 April).

Panelists will discuss strategies implemented by container ports and shipping in a challenging environment.

The panelists are Elias Mwenyo (acting executive commercial services of Namport), Tana Pesat (Namport corporate communications manager), Ramalingum Maistry (chairman Mauritius Ports Authority), captain Rufus Lekela (chief harbor master of National Ports Authority South Africa), Mbahupu Hippy Tjivikua (CEO of the Walvis Bay Corridor Group Namibia), Erick Shimumbwe (trade facilitation of the Walvis Bay Ndola Lubumbashi Development Corridor Zambia), Lovemore Bingandadi (program coordinator for the Tripartite Transport and transit facilitation program COMESA, ESA and SADC) and Mark Assaf (chief human resources development section TrainForTrade UNCTAD Switzerland).

Homegrown panelist

According to panelist Tana Pesat, the webinar “is definitely going to be interesting. I am looking forward to brushing shoulders with especially the more experienced speakers. They will have a lot to share as to how we are going to navigate in the new normal and what we can expect in the transport and ports industry.”

She added that even though the logistics industry is male-dominated, “for you [women] to be respected in this industry you need at least 15 years’ experience. It doesn’t matter if you are male or female; it comes down to how much experience you have and how much weight you carry.”

She added that there are women leading in the local industry who enjoy their male counterparts’ support.

“What sets the ladies in managerial positions at Namport apart, is that we not only have finesse, we have grit. We don’t give up. We believe in ourselves and our male counterparts believe in us too. They listen to and encourage us.”

She encourages the public to log on for the webinar.

“It’s not just about Namport; it will shed light on how we operate in the broader industry and how it contributes to the economy. The port is seen as a forecaster of what is going to happen to the Namibian economy.”
