Vice President Nangolo Mbumba has called on the Southern African Customs Union to redouble its effort towards ensuring post COVID-19 economic recovery through regional economic integration. Mbumba said Namibia recognises its continued involvement with SACU as a strategic response to the growing demand for market enlargement within the context of globalisation and tackling Namibia’s development challenges, as well as promoting economic growth and employment creation. “In these times of global economic instability, framed by a fragile world economic recovery and outlook, effective regional integration is of paramount significance. Therefore, we should embark upon a recovery process that involves restoring, refocusing and rededicating our efforts to achieve our collective mission,” he explained.
