Namibia and the United Kingdom have agreed to strengthen existing cooperation and explore new areas of cooperation.
Visiting members of the All Party Parliamentary Group for Africa from the House of Commons in the UK, met with the National Assembly Speaker and parliamentarians in Windhoek on Thursday.
The two teams commit themselves to work together in promoting trade and strengthen cooperation.
Professor Peter Katjavivi says existing cooperation ties should be used to find solutions to problems facing both countries and the world, including the refugee crisis.
Katjavivi reiterated Namibia's commitment to implementing the Memorandum of Understanding between the UK and Caribbean, Pacific and African countries which focuses on the training of MPs.
On their part, the UK MPs will look at new areas of cooperation after their exit from the European Union.
The All Party Parliamentary Group for Africa Chairperson, Chi Onwurah, says the UK wants to start a new cooperation and trade agreement with the world.
DTA President McHenry Venaani appealed to the visiting delegation to ensure Namibia get its fair deal from trade with the UK.
The two teams spoke extensively on improving agriculture, especially north of the Veterinary Cordon Fence.
