Zim transport minister visits port of Walvis Bay

The Minister of Transport and Infrastructure Development of the Republic of Zimbabwe, Hon Felix Mhona recently paid a courtesy visit to the Namibian Ports Authority.

The purpose of his visit amongst others was to understand the progress made so far in the development of infrastructure, installation and enhancement of systems at the Zimbabwean dry port to facilitate trade. Minister Mhona said cooperation between Zimbabwe and Namibia “is historic” and already, there is cooperation on various social, economic and political fronts. “Most strategically, I am told that our two sister countries are currently working on strengthening trade between them, by promoting the utility of the transport corridors of Trans-Kalahari and Walvis Bay Ndola Lumbumbashi Corridor routes.
“This, I know, and as we shall fully establish, is being spearheaded under the auspices of the Walvis Bay Corridor Group. All this speaks volumes of our well-established cooperation,” said Mr Mhona during his visit.
The Zimbabwean Dry Port facility was officially opened in 2019 by H.E. President Mnangagwa, President of Zimbabwe with his counterpart Dr Hage Geingob, the President of the Republic of Namibia.
