Geingob to participate in African Energy Week

President Hage Geingob is heading to Cape Town, where he is set to participate in the African Energy Week conference.

Geingob, who is expected to deliver the opening keynote address at the event, has also been selected by the African Energy Chamber's Board (AEC) as the recipient of its 2023 Lifetime Achievement Award.

The award is a recognition of African leaders who have taken bold steps to improve the socioeconomic development and well-being of Africans by accelerating energy sector growth in Africa.

According to the AEC, under Geingob's leadership, Namibia has earned a reputation for good governance, which has contributed to continued investment and exploration since the 2022 discoveries.

The Chamber also noted the country's commitment to using a portion of its natural gas resources to meet domestic needs, which will bolster Namibia's energy security and pave the way for economic growth and industrialization.

The Chamber also commended the President's dedication to Namibia's natural gas agenda, while also highlighting the country's efforts to develop its renewable energy sector.

AEW is the African Energy Chamber's annual conference, exhibition, and networking event taking place from the 16th to the 18th of October.
