Executive Director in the Ministry of International Relations and Cooperation Selma Ashipala-Musavyi said agreements and Memorandums of Understandings (MoUs) signed by Namibia and Angola require timely and effective implementation to impact people's lives.

Musavyi made the remarks yesterday during the fifth session of the Namibian-Angola Joint Commission of Cooperation which commenced here.

The event, which ends Sunday, will look to strengthen and intensify about 40 bilateral cooperation agreements on trade and investment, transport, cross border connectivity, agriculture and water management, finance and people to people contact.

Musavyi said she believes both country's will agree that the significance lies not in the number of agreements concluded but in the timely and effective implementation of those agreements and MoUs, so as to impact the lives and livelihood of the people, adding this should be the primary focus of the commission for cooperation.

The meeting is an affirmation of the excellent and brotherly relations that exist between the two countries and provides an opportunity to revitalise and further enhance bilateral cooperation because there are a number of areas with mutual interests, she added.
