Industrialisation, Trade and SME Development Lucia Iipumbu on Wednesday applauded local retailers for accommodating locally produced products. Nampa reports that Iipumbu, while motivating the ‘Buy Local, Grow Namibia’ initiative launched by her ministry early this month, in Parliament said during her tour to some local retailers last week, she observed that 80 percent of the fresh produce in most retailers, is locally sourced. The ‘Buy Local, Grow Namibia’ initiative is aimed at influencing members of the public to buy locally produced products in order to grow Namibia and bolster local production, while at the same time strengthening the local economy.
