The City of Windhoek has identified a master plan for the development of infrastructure for informal traders in an effort to upsurge the informal economy.“We know the local economy is better served through informal operators, who provide livelihoods, employment and income for many families. So, the aim is to increase standard trading areas for our informal traders,” the Namibia press agency quotes the city’s Strategic Executive for Economic Development and Community Services, Fillemon Hambuda as saying. Hambuda explained that the Ministry of Industrialisation and Trade has availed N$ 5 million to CoW and some of these funds will be used to construct the informal markets.
