Lubango — The executive secretary of Namibian Honorary Consulate to Angola's southern Huila province, Matias Capepa, Thursday in Lubango spoke of the need for a chamber of commerce between businesses from southern Angola and his country.
Speaking to Angop in Lubango on the functioning of the consulate, the official said that alike South Africa and other countries, Angola must also set up a business forum with Namibia.
He explained that businessmen from Angola and Namibia must outline programmes that enable and facilitate trade, which requires the creation of a chamber of commerce.
According to him, Angolan businessmen, particularly those based in the southern region of the country have been importing diverse goods through the border with high customs duties, an operation that, according to him, could be facilitated with the creation of a chamber of commerce.
He recalled that Angola has all along been a Namibian partner, even since the Apartheid regime of South Africa and the armed conflict in the former.
