  • New Namibia Online Information Portal Breaks Down Barriers to Trade

    The U.S. Government, in partnership with Namibia’s Ministry of Finance and Namibia’s Customs & Excise, launched a powerful new tool to increase and facilitate cross-border trade. The "Namibia Trade Information Portal" is a web-based platform that provides an authoritative "one-stop shop" of readily accessible trade, customs and compliance information. It is designed to significantly reduce the time and effort required for local and international traders to access current information and documentation required for doing business. The portal is the culmination of many years of collaboration between government of Namibia agencies and ministries and the U.S. government, working through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Southern Africa Trade Hub Project.

    Remarks by U.S. Ambassador Thomas F. Daughton Independence Day Celebration July 2, 2015, Hilton Hotel
    On Independence Day, we celebrate our history and we reaffirm our commitment to the fundamental rights we value most:  life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.  We also reaffirm our commitment to the self-evident truth that all people are created equal.  As President Obama often reminds us:  What binds our nation together is not the colors of our skin, the tenets of our faith, or the origins of our names.  What binds us as Americans is the certainty that all people, everywhere, are created equal.
