Windhoek - Namibia is set to transform into a paperless parliament, as per e-government and e-parliament policies, from Wednesday 13 February 2019 
 
Peter Katjavivi, the Namibian speaker of parliament, has announced that the parliament has already made arrangements with its sister parliament, the Parliament of Finland, concerning the development.
 
The development will see parliamentarians using digital devices to read their speeches and capturing minutes instead of papers to avoid spending resources on printing.
 
Last year, Prime Minister Saara Kuugongelwa-Amadhila introduced ways to reduce the cost of running the public service that would run up to 2022.
 
The new measures include limiting foreign travels to two trips a year for civil servants, controlling the abuse of state vehicles, rooting out ghost workers and cracking down on wastage by using emails instead of papers.
