The Namibian Ports Authority (Namport) and South Africa’s Transnet National Ports Authority (TNPA) have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to pave way for co-operation between them.
According to Namport, this is the second in a number of memoranda TNPA intends to sign with ports in southern and eastern Africa. The first of these MoUs was signed with Maputo Port Development Corporation in June.
“Given the strategic similarities of our respective ports from a geographic perspective and the proximity to industrial zones, we recognise the importance of improving our relationship and collaboration,” says TNPA chief executive, Tau Morwe.
This collaboration is expected to result in the sharing of maritime experiences and exchange of technical expertise, particularly, in relation to port management, port operations, port environment and security as well as training of employees.
Information sharing will include policies on a wide range of topics relevant to activities of port authorities, such as infrastructure development, improving the port environment and commercial waterfront development, which will help enhance trade and maritime services. The accord also means TNPA can access the expertise of Namport, which it can apply to its ports.
“Namport is entering a new phase in its existence with emphasis on cost efficiencies, productivity and performance management,” comments Namport chief executive, Bisey Uirab, adding: “This will translate into a customer focused service delivery grounded in total service quality and the MoU will assist us in our goals and in promoting our port.”
