NCCI to elect new leaders in June

WINDHOEK; The Namibia Chamber of Commerce and Industry (NCCI) will elect its new national leadership in June this year.

NCCI president Martha Namundjebo-Tilahun said this during a media briefing here on Wednesday, adding that the chamber will also launch its five-year strategic plan during that annual general meeting (AGM).

“One of the key strategic objectives which we are determined to achieve in the next two to three years is to work with Government and other stakeholders to make Namibia the number one country to do business in Africa, and to improve our competitive ranking on the World Economic Forum Competitive Index,” she said.

Namundjebo-Tilahun said the NCCI’s regional branches have until end of April to elect new branch leaderships.

She urged all NCCI branches to ensure their AGMs are held in a peaceful atmosphere and that proper preparations are made to have branch representatives at the national AGM.

The NCCI has over 2 500 members countrywide.

Meanwhile, the Ongwediva NCCI branch recently elected its seven-member leadership for the next two years.

Veicko Haimbodi was re-elected as chairperson, deputised by Pandu Wahengo.

Turkey Tobias was elected to succeed Wahengo as secretary of the branch, while Juliana Haimbodi, Peter Mutumbulwa, Eben Heita and Joe Archer Shikongo have been elected as four additional members.
