Business partners and visibility in Namibia – join us to the Doing Business with Finland seminar on 19.4.2018!



Are you interested in the business opportunities Namibia has to offer? Finnpartnership, Business Finland and the Embassy of Finland in Windhoek are organizing a half-day seminar Doing Business with Finland (DBF) in Windhoek, Namibia on 19.4.2018. The seminar will focus on agriculture, clean tech, education and ICT. The purpose of the seminar is to create new business opportunities between Finnish and Namibian companies. Our local partner, Namibia Chamber of Commerce and Industry (NCCI), has identified Namibian companies from the same sectors that will be invited to the seminar. The export part of the seminar will focus on food and tourism sectors.


Sign up by March 20 by sending an e-mail to Finnpartnership’s Kaisa Arkkila, Participants will arrange their trip and visas themselves. The trip can be part of a broader project aimed at Namibia, in which case you can apply for Finnpartnership’s Business Partnership Support. The next Application workshop, in which you can learn more about Business Partnership Support, will be organized on 22.3.2018 – read more here.

Besides the DBF seminar in Namibia, DBF seminars are also being organized in Zambia on 11.4.2018 and in Botswana 17.4.2018. Finnish companies are warmly welcome to join these seminars as well.


If you cannot attend the seminar but wish to be introduced to Namibian companies, you can send two Powerpoint slides to Finnpartnership. We will present your company at the seminar and open the discussions with interested local companies. The slides should include:

1) Picture of the product or an illustrative picture of the service and a short introduction.

2) Name of the company and contact information (a webpage is not enough)

3) A definition of what kind of business partner the company/organization is looking for.
