Detail

The UK Government remains committed to building Britain’s prosperity by increasing exports and investment, opening markets, ensuring access to resources, and promoting sustainable global growth. Trade and investment are absolutely fundamental for our economy. The UK has a strong history as a trading and investing nation and continues to be one of the world’s most attractive places to do business, but the world is changing and we cannot be complacent. Encouraging businesses to export more is at the very heart of our approach. We need to ensure that businesses, especially our small businesses, have all the tools they need to flourish, that we strengthen and our relationship with trade partners around the world, including Namibia, that we fight protectionism and ensure poorer countries can benefit fully from free and fair trade.

The British High Commission recently launched the newly revised “Doing Business in Namibia Guide”, an updated version of the original 2012 edition. The 2012 edition has proven to be an extremely popular commercial and reference aid for British businesses in Namibia and has been an excellent tool to further the British and Namibian governments’ common objectives on trade and Investment.

The Doing Business in Namibia Guide is part of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office’s local efforts in Namibia to provide such tools for British businesses. The British High Commission in Windhoek remains committed to assisting UK companies to increase trade and investment links with Namibia.
