Responsible for nearly 6 percent of global uranium output as well as nearly 2 percent of the world’s diamond production, the Southern African nation is also home to significant resources of gold, copper and zinc as well as a developing offshore oil and gas industry.
Namibia consistently ranks as one of the most favored mining jurisdictions on the continent — a distinction that is much more than a mere reflection of its natural endowments, but a significant indicator of the country’s stable democracy, strong economy and well-developed mining code.
WINDHOEK-Namibia has been conferred the African Gender Award 2017 for its outstanding achievements in promoting gender equality and protection of women rights.
President Hage Geingob received the award as a top performing country in Africa by the African Gender Forum, within the context of the Gender Is My Agenda Campaign (GIMAC). Ex-Liberian president Ellen Johnson Sirleaf handed over the African Excellence Gender Awards for 2017 to President Geingob, during a state banquet in Windhoek.
Geingob said more can be done for women in Namibia.
“But the progress we have made in promoting gender equality and the empowerment of women in our society is something we should be proud of. It is why, on behalf of the Namibian Government and the people of Namibia, I would like to thank GIMAC and the people of Africa for recognizing our modest efforts in promoting gender equality through different policy initiatives and interventions,” he said.
“Our commitment to gender equality is visible when you look at the important role women play in politics, including our executive and legislature”.
During the two-year tenure of the GIMAC Award, President Geingob said he will commit himself to champion the theme: “Women’s Empowerment and Inclusive Governance” which signal the country’s continued intent to increase the participation of women in all spheres of socio-economic life.
