India would provide every assistance that Namibia may require to improve its socio-economic objectives, President Pranab Mukherjee said on Thursday. He appreciated the vision of President (Hage) Geingob in introducing the 'Harambee Prosperity Plan'. India stands ready to extend any assistance that Namibia may require for achieving the 'Harambee Prosperity Plan's socio-economic objectives, Mukherjee said.

The Indian President underlined that the relationship between India and Namibia has been built on the firm foundation of mutual trust and understanding. India would be happy to partner with Namibia in implementation of 'Vision 2030' through inclusive development and capacity building. India also respects the Namibian Parliament’s contribution in promoting developmental agenda and political dialogue, he said.

India has agreed to extend all possible assistance in human resource development as well as capacity building in Namibia. To strengthen the economic partnership between the two countries, India could utilise its expertise in agriculture, dairy development, and digital technologies. This would also give a thrust to the country’s developmental agenda, the President said. 

Indian government has for long been offering scholarship and training programmes to the Namibian students and officials. Africa rises again to reclaim its rightful place in the comity of nations. India welcomes the growing role of Namibia in driving the prosperity of this region, he added.
