Brazil business engagement promotes Namibia as preferred and shortest trade route into southern Africa

The Walvis Bay Corridor Group (WBCG) embarked on a business development mission to Brazil in July as part of its ongoing efforts to promote Namibia as the preferred and shortest trade route into southern Africa. The mission’s goal was to engage the Brazilian business community, ports, shipping lines, freight forwarders, and industries to explore opportunities Namibia can provide as a supply chain solution for the Brazilian market.

The two-week engagements concluded successfully with an information-sharing session in São Paulo, Brazil. The session, titled “Positioning Walvis Bay as Brazil’s Preferred Trade Route,’ highlighted the advantages of using the Ports of Walvis Bay and Lüderitz and thus by extension the Walvis Bay Corridors.

At the information sharing session, Mbapeua Muvangua, Namibia’s Ambassador to Brazil, stated that such engagements are critical in expanding areas of collaboration for the mutual benefit of Brazil and Namibia.
