Namibia Investment Promotion and Development Board
Doing business in Namibia has never been easier.
As Namibia’s lead investment promotion agency, the Namibia Investment Promotion and Development Board (NIPDB) is committed to creating a simple and transparent business environment, built on the foundation of peace, stability and rule of law.
The NIPDB commenced operations in January 2021, taking over the functions of its predecessor, the Namibia Investment Centre (under the Ministry of Industrialisation and Trade) to become the lead investment agency for Namibia. Located strategically in the Office of the President, the NIPDB serves as the first point of call for potential investors wanting to do business in Namibia. Our aim is to make Namibia the investment destination of choice by improving the ease of doing business here, starting with eliminating red tape and driving policy reforms.
The Board provides comprehensive investor support mainly categorised as follows:
Ultimately the NIPDB exists to unlock opportunities that enable a better quality of life for all Namibians. We do this by facilitating trust relationships to attract and retain sustainable investment for private sector-led and inclusive economic growth. As part of its statutory mandate, the Board also aims to improve Namibia’s competitiveness score, develop the required skills for sustainable investments that lead to job creation, and create an enabling ecosystem for MSME’s to thrive and scale.
