An inter-ministerial platform to holistically consider issues of national priority and better coordinate our economic diplomacy in order to provide timely information and services to investors and all our stakeholders. b. A key factor to be considered within the attractiveness of potential industrial opportunities shall be their potential to insert themselves within global value chains where Namibia has and or will have a comparative advantage.
