Limpopo Province to sign agreements with northern regions

A delegation from South Africa's Limpopo Province, who is in Namibia to sign cooperation agreements with four Northern regions has met officials of the Ministry of Urban and Rural Development in Windhoek.
Outgoing Minister of Urban and Rural Development Sophia Shaningwa and her successor, Peya Mushelenga welcomed the delegation.
Both Namibian leaders said the agreement is an indication of the great value Namibia and South Africa place on bilateral ties.
Shaningwa noted that Limpopo and the four Namibian regions share similar climates and are major crop producers.
Mushelenga said both countries are inter-dependent and share the goals of bringing development and basic services to remote areas.
Limpopo Province's Head of Economic Development, Environment and Tourism, Seaparo Charles Sekoati said the Limpopo would enter into agreements with Oshikoto, Oshana, Ohangwena and Omusati regions.
He said the cooperation would cover tourism, cultural exchange, agriculture, rural development and trade.
The provincial lawmaker said African countries can reach development goals and fast-track regional integration through such agreements.
