The two countries agreed to form a joint committee to carry out the MoU. The committee will work together with both countries' energy ministries to explore partnership opportunities especially in renewable energy.
Namibian Deputy Prime Minister Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah said at the signing ceremony that she was happy the two countries reached such an MoU.
