About Namibia

In the 27 years since its independence, Namibia has made tremendous strides in establishing a democratic, viable nation. The country has a free press, an independent judiciary, well-protected property rights, and a fairly good labor market. Namibia also boasts well-developed financial markets and excellent infrastructure by regional standards. However, several formidable challenges constrain progress. Namibia has one of the world’s worst HIV epidemics, high levels of income disparity, a high unemployment rate, and a struggling economy.
