Bremen delegation to South Africa and Namibia

1-10 June 2018, South Africa and Namibia: A political and trade delegation comprising 60 representatives from Bremen, Oldenburg and the Elbe-Weser triangle travelled to Cape Town, Windhoek and Walvis Bay. It was led on the trade side by the President of the Bremen and Bremerhaven Chamber of Commerce, Harald Emigholz as well as the Mayor and Senate President of the Free Hanseatic City of Bremen, Dr. Carsten Sieling.

Representatives from the fields of logistics, harbour and shipping industry, plant construction, electronics and IT, construction industry and infrastructure, energy industry and service industries, health and food industry encompassed the delegation.

President of Bremen’s Senate and Mayor Carsten Sieling led the delegation.

In South Africa the delegation paid a visit to Green Cape, an organisation focusing on collaborations with enterprises, investors, universities and governmental institutions to promote green technologies. A visit to Launch Lab in Stellenbosch was meant to connect and study the success of the start-up scene in the Cape Town region.

For Bremen the harbour and logistics infrastructure in Wavis Bay, the largest Namibian harbour, is paramount because it is developing to become the most important trade zone for good exchanges to South Africa. There is a promising cooperation with the harbour company Namport in Walvis Bay, which offered a free office to Bremen to begin the cooperation.

On the political side, Mayor Carsten Sieling paid a visit to Durban, which boasts the largest harbour in South Africa and holds a cooperation agreement with Bremen since September 2011. Out of this agreement a climate partnership was also developed, and is a important working project for Bremen and South Africa.
