HageGeingob officiates at the 45th Ghanzi Agricultural Show in Botswana

President HageGeingob yesterday officiated at the 45th Ghanzi Agricultural Show in Botswana held under the theme 'Sustainable economic diversification beyond 50 years through green technology'.

Ghanzi is a town situated in the middle of the Kalahari Desert in the western part of Botswana and the event was also attended by Botswana President MokgweetsiMasisi and his wife, Neo.

In his speech, Geingob pointed out the two countries' mutual relationship.

Besides being known for quality cattle, Ghanzi also serves as a gateway to Namibia by hosting many tourists from Botswana, especially those destined for Swakopmund and Walvis Bay, he noted.

The president said the event which started small has since established itself as a premier event and described it as a reflection of the Southern African Development Community (SADC)'s keen intent to enhance the region's industrial base and modernise its economies through its Industrialisation Strategy and Roadmap.
