Meet Ambassador A.N. Mutelo – Namibia



Since my arrival in Malaysia and South East Asia to take up my noble

assignment as High Commissioner of the Republic of Namibia to

Malaysia, my team and I have been working hard to promote and market

our beloved country, Namibia, Southern Africa and the entire African

Continent. We are busy at work to sensitize the local community that

Africa is 54 unique and sovereign countries and member States and not

one country as is commonly portrayed in this part of the world. In

July 2016, we at the High Commission of Namibia organized a Namibia

Tourism Day at the Chancery introducing the leading Malaysian Travel

Agencies and Tour Operators to the country as a travel destination to

promote to their customers looking for a new destination.

The High Commission participated in the 2016 Sabah International Expo

(SIE) in September 2016, which is the Malaysian State of Sabah’s

premier trade fair. The main objective of SIE was to provide a

platform for exhibitors to establish business contact, showcase our

Namibian made products, services, and tourism attractions.

The High Commission further participated in the 4th World Tourism

Conference 2016 (WTC2016) that was held in Penang, Malaysia in October

2016. This Conference looked at the importance of the tourism industry

to embrace technology in order to keep up with the demand of travelers

to be able to use their mobile phones for the planning and execution

of their visit to a country. Discussions also underscored the need to

harvest public, private and citizen partnerships with the

consideration of the conservation of the environment and wildlife.

In October 2016, the Mission participated in Africa Business Day, a

2-day event of business networking events and promotional activities

between Malaysian and African companies organized by the Malaysian

Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI) in collaboration

with the African High Commissions and Embassies in Malaysia, and

Malaysia African Professional and Entrepreneurs Association (MAPE).

The objective of the event was to:

i. Create awareness of business opportunities between Malaysia and Africa

ii. Promote exports of Malaysian products and services to Africa

iii. Promote imports of African products to Malaysia

iv. Promote Malaysian investments in Africa and African investments in


v. Establish business partnerships between Malaysia and Africa

The High Commission has just hosted two successful 27th Namibian

Independence National Day Receptions in both Indonesia and Malaysia

where we showcased Namibian cuisine and attractions. We also hosted a

Namibia Travel Talk to invite and encourage Malaysians to visit Namibia.

The High Commission of Namibia will continue to promote, market and

take care of the interests of Namibia, the SADC Region and the entire

African Continent in our joint and collective spirit of Pan Africanism

and African Renaissance. In this way we will realise the dreams of our

OAU Founding Fathers for regional integration and closer cooperation

as well as make the 21st Century an African success story. This will

be pursued through Namibia’s Vision 2030 and Africa’s Agenda 2063 as

well as the Africa-Asia Strategic Partnership and South-South

cooperation, respectively.
