Join the NMA

What NMA does for your Company

There are many good reasons to become a member of the NMA, some of which you can find below. Probably the most important is that NMA consists of real people with real concern for the Namibian manufacturing sector and all companies driving it.

You can be one hundred percent sure that everyone at NMA will do their best to facilitate a conducive climate for your business to grow.

NMA value-add to members

NMA plays a huge and important role in influencing the formulation of government policies. This is especially relevant to those policies directly affecting manufacturers, such as Manufacturing Incentives, work permits, Taxation, NDP4/NDP5, Growth @ Home , HARAMBEE Prosperity Plan, New Procurement Bill, etc.

NMA influences curriculum development and manufacturing related courses at tertiary institutions for the benefit of the Industry. NMA maintains a close working relationship with important stakeholders such as NCCI, NEF, CIF, NTF, ECB, Team Namibia, Chamber of Mines and NTA, to name a few.

Some other services offered by NMA to members include:
  • the bi-annual Manufacturing Directory (an important source of information for government, investors and members alike),
  • assisting members with outstanding VAT issues and obtaining Manufacturing Status,
  • constant dialogue and input on the Retail Charter and
  • constant dialogue with stakeholders in the regulation of utilities cost.

NMA is the link between all industry stakeholders

The NMA has been in existence since 2002, thus we are intimately familiar with  the Namibian manufacturing sector, the business environment and all stakeholders involved. It is our constant input to all relevant industry topics that has earned NMA wide recognition not only from its members and other private sector organisations but also from the Namibian Government including all line ministries. Hence, NMA is in the perfect strategic position to represent you as members in different business spheres.

NMA takes up member concerns and gets to action

It is our philosophy at NMA that members and therefore companies are represented on the Board and Management Committees of the NMA. We believe that this way we can go beyond responding to individual concerns brought to our attention and ensure that ALL NMA members' needs and concerns are raised and addressed. Hence, NMA gathers individual member concerns and more general manufacturing and industry issues and sets out to find appropriate solutions.

NMA keeps members informed

As a NMA member you will always be up-to-date through constant emails on industry issues, policies, laws both locally and internationally. Subscribe to our newsletter, browse the industry issue section or get in contact.
