Description of the arrangement with the foreign principal
Hunter&Co has managed the inbound delegation of the Namibia Investment Promotion Development Board (NIPDP), led by its CEO Nangula Uaandja, which coincided with Africa Down Under. The NIPDP sits within the Office of the President. There are around twenty Australian companies in Namibia, a traditional mining jurisdiction which also is one of the cheapest sources of green energy in the world. NIPDP is keen to diversify its economic relationship with Australia into sectors including agriculture, logistics, and business services. There is great opportunity for knowledge transfer, particularly with respect to dry land farming and feedstock in dry climates: areas in which Australia has great expertise, in similar climatic contexts.
