Namibia: New Erongo CRO Promises to Take Region 'Higher'

Swakopmund — The Erongo Regional Council (ERC) has appointed Nathalia /Goagoses, the former director of education of Omaheke Region, as its new chief regional officer (CRO).

/Goagoses, who has already served in the public service for 29 years, mostly in the education and training sectors, took office at the ERC on January 1.

/Goagoses said she would focus on the Strategic Plan 2012-2017 to ensure the effective implementation of the three strategic objectives, namely, socio-economic development, operational efficiency and good governance in partnership with stakeholders.

"Twenty-nine years in the public service, mostly in education and the training sector while specialising in management and leadership groomed me to take the reins and steer the Erongo Region to even greater development heights," she said.

She said operational efficiency is one of the most important pillars of the successful implementation of plans.

"Operational efficiency can only be realised if leaders create stimulating working environments for staff members. Well-motivated staff members have proven to be most efficient and effective. Therefore, my firm belief is that growth in the ERC would occur with each administrative staff member reaching their maximum potential," Goagoses said.

She emphasised the need to engage in capacity-building programmes, while highlighting effective communication accountability as the basis of growth for the ERC.

"Setting good priorities, tackling issues in a sensible sequence and sustaining implementation are what we aim for. Erongo residents can be assured that the ERC will remain the leading institution in Namibia," she said.
