From 6th to 11th July 2016 a delegation of 10 representatives from the Namibian Road Transport Sector including the Namibian Transport Minister has been on a study tour to Germany. At the start of the tour the delegation was welcomed by Mr Preuß, executive board member of GIZ.

Besides representatives of the Ministry of Works and Transport, officials of state owned enterprises from the road transport sector such as the Roads Authority and the Road Fund Administration as well as officials from the University of Namibia accompanied the Minister.

Goal of the visit in Germany was to deepen the knowledge and exchange about public transport systems, infrastructure and roads planning and funding, technical-scientific research in road engineering as well as road safety. Among others it is within these thematic fields that the GIZ Transport Project in Namibia advises the Namibian Government.
