Highlights
•2016 directs debates towards provision of water, sanitation, food, energy, and infrastructure throughout Namibia
•Media projects emphasis on Namibia’s sustainable management of pension funds, social grants, and ambitions towards more equal wealth, -education (ex. vocational training) and job creation
•Namibia still shadowed by the circumstances of continued economic uncertainty in world markets, poor international demand for commodity, and the negative impact of the drought (and performance of Rand)
•Namibians question the NEEEF and solidarity tax movements. The impact of the NEEEF policy must still be clarified as any uncertainties in the country’s regulatory framework hampers listings on the local index, and primary listings will become increasingly important for institutional investors seeking Namibian assets to comply with legislation
•Acts of crime; cyber security on the one end, and impact of gender based violence (women, children, rehabilitation of perpetrators), baby dumping, alcohol abuse, and high road accident rates still top the agenda on a consistent basis
•Towards 2016, Namibia meets increased reports on human trafficking and anti-corruption measures, with coverage also streaming towards digi-forums and social media channels on a more consistent basis
