Advocacy and Research

The NCCI speaks on behalf of Namibia's private sector to promote a fair and competitive business environment throughout the country.

Our research and advocacy team works together with policymakers to ensure the interests of businesses are represented. This includes economic policy review and reporting, influencing new legislation on behalf of the private sector, and giving firms a unifying voice in Parliament. The Chamber also organizes regular consultative meetings with political leaders in order to keep the public sector abreast of issues affecting the business community. These events are open to all members, providing an excellent opportunity to connect and network with key decision-makers.

Our Advocacy and Research Services
  • Monitoring Legislation and the Policy Environment
  • Articulating Members' Concerns
  • Issue-Based Committees
  • Data Collection and Dissemination

We deliver these services through meetings/stakeholder engagements, surveys, print/radio/social media, and direct inquiries. If you have any questions or would like to discuss policy issues, please contact our Research and Advocacy department at research@ncci.org.na.

Our Advocacy Philosophy

We aspire to make a real difference and to deliver real results.
NCCI's Advocacy and Research aims to create an atmosphere in which anyone can do business, gain business, and/or share business.

The goal is to create a hospitable business climate for all. Therefore, we will NOT:
  • Offer preferential treatment for one company, business sector, or individual
  • Influence legislation to help satisfy one's specific day-to-day business activities. (unless these obstacles are indicative of a larger problem plaguing the business community at large)
  • Provide members with daily problem-solving services related to conducting routine business transactions or settling disputes between members and the government. (To resolve such matters, members should obtain the services of lawyers, collection agencies, and/or consultants)

The work of the Chamber is to focus on matters of common good amongst our membership and the greater Namibian business community. We need to maintain a neutral position in matters of competition between members and always focus on the regulations and rules of competition, not on single interests. In order to build trust and confidence in our organization, we will protect the confidentiality of information shared and will act in a nondiscriminatory way towards any and all of our stakeholders.

Information and Networking

Connecting and Collaborating

The NCCI Team is committed to creating a conducive and fluid environment for professional networking, information sharing and economic participation. We, therefore, create a variety of platforms, events, and engagements where business leaders, change agents, and aspiring entrepreneurs can share ideas, build partnerships, and increase influence and capacity.

In addition to events and programming, we recognize that the power of a Chamber lies in its connections and relationships. Our members have a unique opportunity to tap into the vast NCCI network to harness the various business contacts they need in order to grow their businesses and influences.

Our Information and Networking Services

  • Forums and Conferences
  • Informative Meetings
  • Communications (web, social media, email)
  • B2B Engagements

Trade and Investment

Partnering Beyond our Borders

NCCI plays a pivotal role in the facilitation of trade and investment with domestic and foreign businesses and/or governments. We work closely with local and international Ministries, Government Agencies, and NGOs to ensure trade partners and investors receive all the support they need in order to conduct business with our Namibian business people, both in Namibia and beyond our borders.

Our Trade and Investment Services

  • Trade Inquiries and Business Matching
  • Investor Facilitation
  • Leading and Hosting Business Missions
  • Trade Fairs and Expos
  • Certificates of Origin

Foreign Business Missions
Several times throughout the year, we host various foreign trade missions that are coming to Namibia to seek business partnerships for trade and investment opportunities. NCCI and our partners support these missions by organizing events, conducting B2B sessions, scheduling site visits, mobilizing Namibian business participants, and a variety of other activities. Often these missions are open to the whole Namibian business community, but being an NCCI member will allow you to tap into our team for added support when trying to network and ultimately land a business deal with the visiting delegation.

In addition, NCCI and our partners also organize outgoing trade missions where we bring Namibian business leaders to neighboring and overseas countries to help them establish a presence outside of Namibia. Delegates of these missions often find them incredibly valuable in promoting and expanding their businesses to the outside world.

Advisory Services
Our NCCI Team provides trade and investment advisory services to our members as well as other non-member institutions that are looking to conduct business in or with Namibia. These services are tailored to one's individual needs, and include:
  • Providing accurate and up-to-date information regarding regulatory issues of export/import procedure, investment requirements, licensing, and more
  • Business match-making and networking opportunities
  • Support in trade missions and exhibitions
  • Industry representation in international trade negotiations or facilitation meetings

Certificates of Origin
NCCI provides an important role in the exporting process in that we are the sole organization that provides the required certification needed to verify that Namibian goods are being shipped outside of our country. These Certificates of Origin are issued through several of our Branch Offices which are strategically placed near our major ports and border crossings.

MSME Development

Supporting the Next Generation of Business Leaders

NCCI recognizes that Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) are the backbone of our Namibian economy, and without their vital contribution to all industries and sectors, our entire country is destined to fail. A key component of our mandate as a business support organization (BSO), is to enable and empower our MSMEs to grow and thrive, and we do that through a variety of benefits to our members.

NCCI's Enterprise Development Program

Through your NCCI membership, you can access many of the tools you and your business need in order to become sustainable and competitive in today's ever-evolving market. Our Enterprise Development Program (EDP) is in place to enable you to elevate your skills, expand your knowledge, and stay one step ahead of your competitors.

Here are some of the activities that we offer as part of our EDP
  • Virtual and In-Person Training
  • Communication and Information Sharing
  • Business Seminars
  • Coaching and Mentorship
  • Procurement Support

Negotiated Services for MSMEs

We understand that doing business can be expensive as an MSME, and NCCI is committed to creating a fair and conducive environment for our Namibian entrepreneurs. At NCCI, we are actively building relationships with strategic partners to offer discounted and/or negotiated pricing for products and services. One of the major benefits we currently offer is through our Group Medical Aid Schemes.

Group Medical Aid – NHP or NMC NCCI Group Scheme

We are excited to announce our partnerships with NHP and NMC who are offering discounted member-only health plans for the NCCI members. The rising cost of healthcare has been a concern for everyone, and the Chamber is happy to offer a negotiated discount program to help small employers provide healthcare at reasonable rates. Contact our Head Office at ncciinfo@ncci.org.na or by phone at 061-228809 for more information.
