The keynote address is to be delivered by Hon. Calle Schlettwein, Minister of Trade and Industry who will reflect on the government’s strategy for ‘Growth at Home’, in particular the plans to make Namibian industry more competitive. He will also talk about the private sector’s role in NDP4 and the development of local business, specifically entrepreneurs and SMEs.
The guest speaker will be Lewis Pugh, an ocean advocate, pioneer swimmer and one of the world’s leading inspirational speakers. His talk is sponsored by a group of Team Namibia members, FNB, IJG Securities, Impact Corrugated, Namib Mills and Plastic Packaging. These companies are all committed to the trade promoter’s strategy of improving competitiveness.
Pugh was the first athlete to complete a long distance swim in every ocean of the world, including the North Pole and even Mount Everest.
