Brazilian external relations minister Aloysio Nunes says there is a huge opportunity for Namibia to get more investment from Brazil.

He said this during a meeting with deputy prime minister and international relations minister Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah.

The two ministers discussed possible new agreements and also revisited already standing agreements between the two countries that will strengthen bilateral relations.

Nunes said taking into account the economic difficulties Brazil went through, they are working on investing in more value addition programmes.

“We can also offer the Namibian youth the opportunity to study in Brazil. We have several students from Namibia studying at different universities in different parts of our country,” he added.

Namibia is the first African country which Nunes has visited since taking office recently. He will also visit Botswana, Malawi and Mozambique.
