Our Vision

To further the economic development of Namibia by bridging the apparent gap between the private and public sector players, and to open channels for improved dialogue, support and cooperation.



EAN provides a forum for local economists to interact and share ideas



From private sector, state owned enterprise, government, tertiary institutions, civil society or International Cooperation Partners



Within a neutral environment, irrespective of background, or institutional connection

Focusing on policy interventions that unshackle the potential of the Namibian people

Catalysing this potential towards greater development, building capacity and wealth, and ultimately breaking the chains of poverty and inequality that continue to hamper far too many Namibians.
