“The purpose of this initiative is for the knowledge enhancement of policy champions to advance the current agricultural sector’s trade and policy mechanisms in Namibia,” Salomo Mbai, the Director of ATPI, said. Additionally, the training will aid to the socio-economic growth of Namibia through the betterment of the agricultural sector by improving the balance of trade and employment creation.
The course was designed after a detailed stakeholder survey that took place last year and targeted various role players in the agribusiness value chain. “The training targets various government representatives from different ministries, the Farmers Union, banks, private sector representatives, agricultural control boards, and other local institutions and international organisations,” the Project Manager of ECAP, Vehaka Tjimune elaborated.
The training consists of a total of 14 modules covering various topics such as Foundations of International Trade Policy, Trade Agreements, Trade-in Agriculture, International Marketing, Introduction to International Trade, and Modern Tools in International Trade Analysis, to name a few. Through close collaboration with various international institutions, the training courses will be offered by the Trade Law Centre, the University of North West and Diagnostics, the University of Stellenbosch, the University of Hohenheim, and the University of Bonn.
