The office of Namibia’s Ministry of Works and Transport will review laws that govern the transport sector, according to a ministry statement on Thursday.

The Minister of Works and Transport, John Mutorwa said the aim is to improve the country’s tourism sector.


The ministry is working on new legislation such as the Roads, Overload Control Bill and the Road Safety Bills, as well as Architects and Quantity Surveying Professional Management, the Engineering and the Road Public Passenger Bills, Mutorwa stated.

Mutorwa said the review aims to create a conducive environment for growth in the sector that would directly uplift the economy.

“The tourism sector in Namibia is the largest-earning industry, generating over 7.6 billion Namibian dollars (520 million U.S. dollars) to the country annually. We need to do something to make tourists happy and encourage them to come to our beautiful country. We are also doing this to create an effective road transport system,” Mutorwa said. Enditem
