Windhoek – Namibia’s President Hage Geingob on Thursday launched the second phase of the Harambee Prosperity Plan (HPP II), to be implemented from 2021 to 2025.
HPP II is the second stage of a targeted action plan to accelerate growth, development and prosperity in Namibia, based on the lessons learnt during the implementation of the first Harambee Prosperity Plan (from April 2016 to March 2020), President Geingob said.
President Geingob has said HPP II was being launched at a time when Namibia is on a difficult patch imposed by the global pandemic.
“As we enter the second year of the fourth decade of our independence on March 21, which coincides with the implementation of the HPP II, it is self-evident that the journey of Namibia is one of hope, resilience and progress,” he added.
According to President Geingob, HPP II would continue to solidify the narrative of an inclusive, prosperous and united Namibian House.
“To achieve the envisaged targets in the HPP II, the National Development Plans, Vision 2030, and the global Sustainable Development Goals, Namibia is committing to bold and innovative actions in order to harness the potential of all citizens for an inclusive, united and prosperous Namibian house,” he added.
Namibia’s Head of State and Government said HPP II would be executed in the context of the global COVID-19 pandemic and the resultant health, social and economic crises.
HPP II has five key pillars aimed at accelerating government programmes to improve service delivery and grow the economy. – Xinhua
