Namibia Investment Promotion and Development Board

Namibia is gearing up to make its mark at the upcoming 7th Nigeria International Energy Summit (NIES) in Abuja, Nigeria from 26 February to 1 March 2024. Led by the Minister of Mines and Energy, Honourable Tom Alweendo and supported by the Namibia Investment Promotion and Development Board (NIPDB), a business delegation with interests in participating in the upstream oil and gas services sector will be representing Namibia’s interests at this esteemed event.

The NIES has established itself as a prominent platform for African nations to engage with the global energy community, leveraging on the successes of previous editions to foster collaboration, knowledge exchange and investment opportunities. Namibia’s participation underscores its commitment to learning from Nigeria’s journey in energy development, particularly in unlocking local content creation and driving socio-economic growth.

A highlight of the summit will be the National Oil Companies (NOCs) Forum, which will bring together CEOs and key stakeholders from various African NOCs. Under the sub-theme “Sustainable Strategies for Energy Leadership: Navigating Security, Transition, and Finance in a Changing World,” this session is poised to shape the future of the energy sector across the continent.

On the sidelines of the summit, the NIPDB will host two key events:
