Ahead of today’s State of the Nation Address President Hage Geingob has called on Namibians to believe in the country and refrain from negative statements which could influence potential investors. Geingob said as a country Namibia has to provide a conducive environment for foreigners to be willing to invest, explaining that “investors listen to what you are saying and when you are negative, not patriotic, and do not believe in your country they doubt coming to invest in the country”. “The whole country can be changed if we are not negative and it is up to us,” the President insisted.
