“We have seen good trade and an increase in volumes of trade over the years. As partners there is still a lot that we need to work on, especially in the agricultural sector. Namibia has already taken few examples from China and implemented successfully. Chinese people are ready to help in any way that they can and I trust that Namibian people are also,” he said.
