Statement by His Excellency Dr Hage G. Geingob, President of the Republic of Namibia on the Occasion of the New Year 2024, Sunday, 31 December 2023

Fellow Namibians,

When I look back to the past 12 months, which have defined the Year of Revival, I am pleased with the giant steps we have made as Namibians towards our collective prosperity. We are on course in our ambition to leave Namibia in better shape, come March 2025. The foundations of the Namibian House have been strengthened. Namibia is on course for a sustainable economic revival.

Many Namibians will recall the difficulties we experienced over the past years, starting with a global commodity crisis in 2015, which led to protracted declines in Government revenue, affecting the implementation of the ambitious development and infrastructure manifesto the Government had planned to implement in the noble pursuit of prosperity for all.

Many Namibians will also recall that between 2016-2019, the country experienced the most severe droughts to be recorded in Namibian history, forcing Government to spend in excess of 3 billion Namibian Dollars on drought relief to the affected sectors of our population.


The Government of the Republic of Namibia is gravely concerned and condemns the ongoing escalation of violence between Israel and Palestine in the Gaza Strip, which has led to the loss of precious lives of both Palestinians and Israelis.

Namibia calls on Israel to cease its attacks and refrain from engaging in provocative acts
against the Palestinian people and to respect international humanitarian law.

Namibia continues to support diplomatic efforts aimed at reaching a lasting peace solution leading to a two-state solution along the 1967 Israeli border with East Jerusalem as the capital of Palestine.

A politically stable country for 33 years, Namibia is emerging as a prospective green hydrogen hub and front-runner in the global market for GH2, with bold ambitions of becoming the sustainable energy capital for Africa.

Namibia has become one of the leading wind & solar energy producers thanks to its natural resources and it is also a resilient, stable, and reliable market for Critical Raw Materials.

The #ENBF2023 will thus be the perfect occasion for Namibia to showcase its strength and how its partnership with the EU to produce and export green hydrogen can benefit both Namibian and the EU industries.
