Welcome To Namibia

  • Country Profile
  • Development Agenda


The Republic of Namibia is located in southern Africa and shares a border with Zambia, Botswana, Angola and South Africa. It has enjoyed stability since gaining its independence from South Africa in 1990. Namibia was previously a German colony in the 1800s. Namibia has an abundance of natural minerals, which together with sound economic management have propelled it to an upper, middle-income country. Although poverty reduction has been achieved, social and economic inequality and lack of job creation are on-going challenges.
