Portal to economic growth in Namibia


As if intended by nature, the Central-western Plains of Namibia have been carved out over millennia, now to serve as the perfect gateway for socio-economic development in the Erongo Region and beyond.

Covering most of this vast and naturally endowed area, the Erongo Region is taking rapid and giant strides towards establishing itself as Namibia’s new hub for economic growth. This is being emphasised by the region accommodating all the country’s uranium mines as well as mines producing commodities such as gold, marble, granite, sea salt and gem stones.

The rich Benguela Current in the Atlantic Ocean provides for a thriving fishing and processing industry while the continental shelf off its coast keeps the promise of large reserves of natural oil and gas to be explored. At its port city of Walvis Bay the most important sea, air and road routes converge, facilitating national, regional and international trade.

With its tourism industry growing at a fast rate and agriculture at its hinterland serving as the main livelihood there, the Erongo Region offers a diverse portfolio of economic activities and resources.

The most important centres are well connected by excellent roads with its communication, water and electricity infrastructure being of world standard. Strong safeguards ensure the conservation of the region’s biodiversity and sustainable development in harmony with nature.
