REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, JAKARTA -- Namibian President Hage Gottfried Geingob would pay a three-days state visit to Indonesia from Aug 29 to Sept 1, a spokesman of the Indonesian Foreign Affairs Ministry Arrmanatha Nasir said here on Wednesday. The visit would focus on efforts to enhance bilateral cooperation, especially on economy.

"The Indonesian government has made special diplomatic effort during the past few years to open non-traditional market in African countries, and one of them is Namibia," he stated.

Geingob is scheduled to have bilateral talks with Indonesian President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) on Thursday. Among the issue to be discussed in the meeting are cooperation in infrastructure, strategic industry, and strategic development.

The two leaders are also scheduled to witness the signing of memorandum of understandings (MoUs) on fisheries. Geingob is accompanied by the International Relations and Cooperation Minister, Trade Minister, Agriculture Minister, the Economic Planning Minister, and some businessmen.

During the visit, Geingob and his entourage would hold a meeting with some representatives of the state enterprises, including PT Wijaya Karya (Wika) and PT Dirgantara Indonesia. The bilateral trade value between Indonesia and Namibia during January to June was relatively small, reaching US$5.5 million.
