British High Commissioner to Namibia, Charles Moore has said Namibia’s green hydrogen plans have the most potential and that it is Namibia’s time to shine.
Moore said this during a courtesy visit to President Hage Geingob on Tuesday to extend an invitation by British Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak, to attend the United Kingdom-Africa Investment Summit in London scheduled for 04 April 2024.
“This is Namibia’s time to shine…You are one of the most probable countries with green hydrogen plans. It is a great future,” he said.
Moore said the invitation is to ensure that Namibia is included in the investment summit, which is designed to generate new partnerships and increase local trade investment through opportunities in Namibia, particularly green hydrogen and the health sectors, among others.
On his part, President Geingob said Namibia is open to investors, especially in the green hydrogen sector, noting that the country went through a difficult period of economic downturn, severe drought and COVID-19 since him taking over as Head of State.
“It was crisis over crisis… but now things are going to look okay and put the country in a good shape,” he said.
The summit will bring together heads of states and governments from 24 African countries, with British and African business leaders aiming to strengthen UK-African partnerships to create jobs and growth, supporting British and African talent in sectors such as finance and technology, renewable energy and promoting women entrepreneurs.
