At the same event, Corona support goods will be handed over to the Walvis Bay Corridor Group (WBCG) and the official opening of the new mobile container clinics will also take place.
Dignitaries scheduled to attend the event include Erongo governor Neville Andre, chargée d‘affaires of the German embassy Ellen Gölz, chief executive of the Walvis Bay Corridor Group Hippy Tjivikua.
The works ministry, with the support of GIZ, WBCG and other transport sector institutions, has been spearheading the implementation of the Logistics Master Plan. One of the projects from this and that was initiated with German support, is the State of Logistics Report that is aimed at assessing and understanding the logistics sector in order to emphasise and promote the full potential of logistics for Namibia.
The first State of Logistics report was launched in 2018, serving as the benchmark for Namibian logistics activity. It was a noteworthy milestone, since Namibia is one of the first African countries to have developed a report of this kind.
To date, only South Africa publishes an annual report like this. Namibia is therefore taking the lead in terms of information sharing and sector development.
The work was commissioned by the WBCG with the support of the GIZ and the report was prepared by the Namibian-German Centre for Logistics (NGCL) and the Namibia University of Science and Technology (NUST).
