Deputy Executive Director in the Ministry of Industrialisation and Trade, Michael Humavindu, said since 2014, roughly N$ 6 to 7 billion worth of vehicles were either exported to Namibia or through Namibia from South Africa. This, according to Humavindu, shows how important Namibia is in terms of a market for vehicles as well as an ideal geographical location for trade due to its proximity to international markets. He also revealed that at the moment Namibia on average sells about 20 000 vehicle per year, but does little automotive assembling or manufacturing except for the Peugeot-Opel Assembly Namibia plant at Walvis Bay.
