Leaders discuss way forward

03 June 2020 | Government

The Canadian Prime Minister Justin Tradeau and President Hage Geingob discussed the latest developments in the Covid-19 pandemic in a teleconference.
In a statement from the Office of the Prime Minister in Canada, the two leaders spoke about the situation in Canada and Namibia, and the importance of a coordinated global approach to ensure the health and safety of all people, especially the most vulnerable. “They also discussed measures to build economic resilience and ensure a sustainable recovery for African countries, to diversify and strengthen supply chains for critical goods, and to ensure equitable access for all to vaccines once they are developed,” the statement read.
Opportunities to strengthen the relationship between Canada and Namibia include increased trade and investment, building upon Canada’s longstanding support for Namibia since its independence thirty years ago.
The Canadian government is working closely with local, provincial, territorial, and international partners to minimize its health, economic, and social impacts in Canada and around the world. “The Prime Minister also spoke about a joint initiative he recently launched with the United Nations Secretary-General and the Prime Minister of Jamaica to accelerate the global response to the pandemic, and to mobilize access to critical development financing, including by low- and middle-income countries, to help them recover and build back into prosperous, resilient, and inclusive economies and societies.”
