Namibia hopes to tap into US expertise in the agriculture sector, particularly food production.
President Hage Geingob met US Secretary of Agriculture, Douglas Fisher, in New York who he informed that Namibia intended to accelerate food production especially through green schemes.
Due to the current drought, a lot of people are facing food insecurity and President Geingob says government is committed to alleviating the plight of those affected.
He thus invited US experts to offer advice on best practices in the sector.
The US Secretary for Agriculture told President Geingob that investors were keen on doing business in countries where they could easily access wider markets.
