NEW ERA | Amplats half-year earnings to be hampered by tax impairments Page 11 Indebted Britain to scrap credit card charges Page 12 INSIDE BUSINESS This news is your business Govt reaches out to development partners for NDP5 Edgar Brandt Windhoek Namibia’s development partners should assist the country in addressing its priority areas and not only in their own areas of expertise. This request was put forward yesterday during the Development Partners Forum where the Minister of Economic Planning, Tom Alweendo, met with ambassadors, high commissioners and other high-ranking officials who were briefed on the fifth National Development Plan (NDP5) and its implementation strategy. The forum took place at the United Nations House and was hosted by UN Resident Coordinator, Kiki Gbeho. During the forum government officials hoped to receive feedback from development partners on possible areas of support for NDP5. “Partnership was an integral part in drafting NDP5 and partnership should be integral in the implementation of the plan,” Alweendo told participants at the forum. “Partnerships offer new solutions for development agendas and such partnerships cannot be underestimated,” said Gbeho. She added that the UN is developing its next partnership framework and that the UN is Namibia’s development partner Photo: Edgar Brandt Same goals… UN Resident Coordinator Kiki Gbeho (left) and the Minister of Economic Planning, Tom Alweendo, at yesterday’s Development Partners Forum. of choice. Gbeho said she wants to ensure a coordinated support to the country’s development agenda. The projects identified in the fifth National Development Plan (NDP5) require N4 billion in monetary terms to be implemented and are expected to be funded from a multitude of sources, such as through government budgetary allocation, private sector funding, funding from development finance institutions, institutional savings, public-private partnerships (PPPs) and of course, where viable, donor funding. Lucia Iipumbu, deputy minister of Economic Planning, recently explained in parliament that of the total N4 billion estimated cost to implement NDP5, N.3 billion, or 45 percent of the total required investment, will go towards physical infrastructure expansion and modernisation in sectors such as water, energy and ICT. N billion, or 19 percent of the required amount, will go towards social development, social protection, sanitation, housing development, land servicing, youth empowerment and sports development, while N billion, or 18 percent of the total required amount, is required for human capital development such as investment in all levels of education and health and nutrition. Also, N.4 billion, or 12 percent is required to enable structural transformation and N billion (four percent) is the estimated required investment for the promotion of good governance such as the promotion of public service delivery and transparency, effective implementation of decentralization and the preservation of peace, security and rule of law. The remaining N.6 billion (two percent) is the amount required for environmental sustainability and management as well as climate change mitigation. In total, the NDP5 Implementation Plan has 80 programmes that are to be implemented through 178 projects over the next five years. NDP5 consists of two volumes, the Policy document that sets out the priorities of the country and the Implementation Plan that outlines financial requirements and implementation modalities. UK, SACU discuss trading relationship after Brexit WINDHOEK The British Minister of State for Trade Policy, Lord Mark Price, will visit Namibia on Thursday. A statement issued yesterday by the British High Commission in Namibia said Price is in the region to meet trade ministers from the Southern African Customs Union (SACU) and Mozambique to discuss ways to avoid disruptions to current trading relationships with Britain. He attended a meeting with the SACU and Mozambique trade ministers in South Africa yesterday over how to work together to build on the existing trading relationships after the United Kingdom (UK) leaves the European Union (EU). Namibia is, among others, represented by Minister of Trade and Industrialisation, Small and Medium Enterprises, Immanuel Ngatjizeko. Price will also meet with trade associations and local businesses. The statement said the visit shows the commitment of the British Government to securing trade links in both developed and developing countries around the world. “As we look towards our future outside the European Union, we will continue to be a champion for free trade and an advocate for the benefits trade can bring, socially as well as economically … I am excited to visit South Africa and Namibia this week to strengthen existing trading links with the region and build a mutually beneficial trading partnership,” he was quoted as saying in the statement. He said these discussions will allow the countries to continue to work together to ‎generate employment, prosperity and investment through free trade. Price is expected to meet representatives from Botswana, Lesotho, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, and Swaziland, all six of which are partners in the EU’s Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) with southern Africa. This development-focused trade agreement aims to create the right conditions for trade and investment to accelerate growth, helping to support regional integration and poverty eradication, he said. Discussions are also likely to focus on steps to replicate as far as possible the effects of the EPA once the UK has left the EU. The majority British electorate voted on June 23, 2016 to leave the EU. Motivation for leaving the EU revolves around many factors of regional integration but can be summarised into two - border control and trade. – Nampa Sulphuric acid spill simulation at Otjiwarongo next week OTJIWARONGO A sulphuric acid spill simulation exercise will be held at Otjiwarongo next Tuesday. Martinus Mengela, incident commander and safety manager at D&M Rail Construction, told Nampa in an interview on Tuesday the simulation exercise will be held about 10 kilometres south of Otjiwarongo. He said the simulation – organised by a committee comprising officials from D&M Rail, Protea Chemicals and Dundee Precious Metals – is aimed at preparing response units for any possible future acid spills.

Sulphuric acid is extremely dangerous, flammable and harmful to the soil, underground water, vegetation and human beings. About 5,000 tonnes of sulphuric acid are transported via railway tankers five days a week from Tsumeb in the Oshikoto Region to Rössing uranium mine in the Erongo Region since 2015. The acid is produced by Dundee Precious Metals in Tsumeb. Acid is also transported to the Copperbelt mine in Zambia via road in private trucks. The acid is used to separate uranium and copper products from the ore during mining processing activities. – Nampa
