Windhoek Mayor Queen Kamati on Tuesday acknowledged the significant economic and social contributions of the cultural and creative industries to Windhoek’s economy.

Kamati, while reviewing the current affairs and developments that took place in Windhoek since the last Council meeting in May, emphasised the council’s mission of enhancing the quality of life for all by rendering efficient and effective municipal services.

The mayor in her remarks at the ordinary council meeting highlighted that the events include President Nangolo Mbumba’s visit to open markets and the Katutura Old Age Home last week.

“This was an exciting platform for our residents to interact with the Head of State and an opportunity to acquaint himself with the trading environments in Windhoek,” she said.

Kamati further added that the City of Windhoek in partnership with the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR), hosted the Urban Resilience and Disaster Risk Reduction workshop last month, which was aimed at building an understanding of the ever-increasing role of urban disaster risk reduction.

Other developments include the third edition of TechNovation hosted in collaboration with the Namibia Investment Promotion and Development Board (NIPDB) to recognise innovative artistic expressions across the cultural and creative industries, including music, writing, performance arts, design, and technological innovation.

“Herewith, Vice President Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah, highlighted the creative industry’s role as a catalyst for economic growth and social development, emphasising its potential to generate employment opportunities, particularly for young people. I am happy that our communities and stakeholders continue to show interest and continued participation in the success of our city’s governance,” said Kamati.
