Location: KPMG HQ, Amstelveen / the Netherlands

Namibia’s Walvis Bay Corridor Group (WBCG) was in the Netherlands to explore the possibilities of the Namibian Port of Walvis Bay to strengthen the link between the European Union (EU) and southern Africa. SANEC is the official representative for the Walvis Bay Corridor Group in the EU and therefore facilitated a Roundtable on 6 June.

CEO Johny Smith presented the business case of the Walvis Bay to a select group of interested Dutch stakeholders. After the Roundtable, the representatives of the Walvis Bay Corridor Group and the Dutch stakeholders attended the Members in Business Cocktail to connect with other SANEC members and to further discuss the opportunities for linking the EU and southern Africa through the Namibian Port of Walvis Bay.
