IT-based shared service business centers

Yes, the City is definitely interested. Considerable investment has, as a result, been made in the modernization and expansion of the telecommunications sector. The development of the Windhoek network is a priority and includes access to services like Asynchronous Digital Subscriber Line (ADSL) and other high-speed services. Value added services like teleconferencing, video conferencing, etc. are readily available and call center investment, especially, is strongly encouraged.

Textile Manufacturing

Namibia recently secured a US$100 million investment into a fully integrated garment and textile plant. The incentives under AGOA presented a major impetus for the investor, Ramatex Berhad, a Malaysian concern, to establish in the country. Ramatex (Namibia) Pty Limited is already in full production and has already started exporting from its Windhoek-based factory.

Already two other textile companies from South-East Asia are currently constructing their factories in Windhoek and significant effort is being made to attract further investment into the industry with the aim of establishing a textile cluster in the country.

Gem polishing

Gemstone cutting and polishing is a stated priority for the Namibian Government, in view of the availability of a wide variety of high quality precious and semi-precious stones and the existence of a well-organized small miners association. In 2000, the Government secured a US$4 million investment into gemstone development centers in the south and west of the country.

This investment is a joint venture between a US-based company, Namibia’s Offshore Development Company, and small miners. Tremendous opportunity for further investment exists.

Jewelry manufacturing

Jewelry manufacturing is a priority because of the objective to expand Namibia's value-added processing of precious and semi-precious stones (especially diamonds, tourmaline, amethyst, rose quartz, and smoky quartz). The production of typically Namibian jewelry from locally available materials, especially African wildlife jewelry is a particular area of interest. Namibia has an active jewelers association and local jewelers have sophisticated cutting and design skills.
