Namibian President makes state visit to Zimbabwe
Harare, April 23, 2017 (New Ziana) – Namibian President Dr Hage Geingob will arrive in Harare for a three day state visit this week, during which he is expected to officially open the Zimbabwe International Trade Fair in Bulawayo on April 28.
The visit, from April 26 to 28, will also see the Namibian leader travel to Kariba for a tour of the Kariba South power station expansion project after official meetings with President Robert Mugabe.
“The eighth session of the Zimbabwe-Namibia Joint Permanent Commission of Cooperation precedes the state visit and will convene from 24 April to 26 April 2017 at the Rainbow Towers in Harare,” read a statement from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
“Both the state visit by the Namibian President and his high powered delegation and the convening of the 8th session of the joint commission are indicative of the longstanding excellent bilateral relations between the two countries.”
The joint commission is expected to discuss cooperation in areas including trade, agriculture, energy, mining and human capital development.
Zimbabwe and Namibia are also scheduled to sign four Memoranda of Understanding during the visit.
