Namibian, Estonian businesses explore partnerships in technology and Innovation

In a bid to enhance collaboration, a Namibian company, Jabu Logistics and Estonian business delegation comprising Information and Communication Technology (ICT) experts recently came together under the theme, "A Night with Estonia." 

The event provided a platform for business leaders, officials, and industry experts from both countries to engage, network, and exchange ideas. 

Head of Internationalisation for the Estonian ICT Cluster, Jana Silaškova, led a delegation of seven technological companies, highlighting the importance of the Estonian technology sector, which contributes 10% to the country's Gross Domestic Product (GDP). 

Silaškova also pointed out the Estonian ICT Cluster's core competencies in e-Government solutions, Smart Mobility, and Industry Digitalisation. "I want to emphasise the importance of digitalisation and how it has helped Estonia in various ways. Every year, we save 2% of our GDP because we use digital services," added Mariin Ratnik, the Undersecretary for Economic and Development Affairs. 

Ratnik highlighted that Estonian tech companies are keen on building strong ties with Namibia, and have identified potential for mutually beneficial partnerships in the digital age. In his remarks, David Akinin, the Founder and CEO of JABU Logistics, whose company has interests in technology and innovation, encouraged attendees to draw inspiration from what is happening in Namibia and seize the opportunity to build everlasting connections. 

Akinin also emphasised the importance of forging connections that can lead to business opportunities in Namibia, run by Namibians with the support of Estonians. 

"Collaborating with Estonian ICT experts and diversifying our business models presents an exciting opportunity for us to grow and enhance our service offerings. We look forward to exploring the potential for mutually beneficial partnerships in the digital age," he concluded.
