WINDHOEK: The Namibian Manufacturing Association (NMA) and the Ministry of Trade and Industry (MTI) officially launched the first edition of the 2014/15 Manufacturing and Processing Directory (MPD) here today.

The directory is the first of its kind in Namibia, and provides a comprehensive list of business entities involved in the Namibian manufacturing industry, dealing either in finished goods or intermediaries.

The directory also includes companies which provide manufacturing and processing services with home-grown expertise.

Trade and Industry Minister Calle Schlettwein described the directory as an important milestone in the Namibian manufacturing industry.

He thus called on the various players in the industry – manufacturers, processors and suppliers – to participate in future editions.
