Angola and Namibia accelerate the signing of a cooperation agreement on meat trade

Angola and Namibia decided to accelerate the signing of the bilateral agreement on cooperation in matters of trade, cattle, meat and meat derivatives, and create a bi-national commission in early 2024, the Government announced.


In a statement, the Angolan executive explains that the commission will be a platform that allows "to strengthen trade and investment".

Those decisions were taken at a bilateral meeting, which took place on Monday in Luanda, between the Angolan Minister of Foreign Affairs, Téte António, and the Vice-Prime Minister and Minister of International Relations and Cooperation of the Republic of Namibia, Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah .

According to the note, at the meeting, Téte António and Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah exchanged views on matters of common interest, "including the issue of Namibian cattle breeders who have settled in the southern part of Angola, and reaffirmed the importance of peaceful coexistence and of good neighborliness along the border".

Minister Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah, mandated by the President of her country, Hage Geingob, for her part "thanked Angola's solidarity" for allowing Namibian cattle farmers to practice pastoralism in Angolan territory, due to the effects of climate change, said the communicated.

The two countries want livestock farmers who have established illegal structures in Angolan territory to vacate their occupation.

With a view to raising awareness among local populations about the importance of peaceful coexistence and good neighborliness between the two countries, Téte António and Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah agreed to undertake a joint working visit to the province of Cunene, in Angola, and Ohangwena, in Namibia , before the end of this month.

Angola and Namibia also agree on the need to preserve protected natural reserves, in harmony with the objectives and principles of the Kavango-Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area (KAZA CFTA).

The note also states that the two diplomats called on the Angolan and Namibian authorities to operationalize the Governors' Forum, in order to establish closer links between the neighboring communities of the two countries.

The bilateral agreement on the Movement of People and Goods, signed in 1992 between the two countries and which provides, among other aspects, the free movement of Angolans and Namibians within a radius of 60 kilometers along the border, remains in force.
