WINDHOEK: The government of Namibia has expressed gratitude to India for helping develop human resources of the Southern African country. Namibian state radio, NBC News, says the assistance is being done through settingup of information technology, commercial and e-health projects under the PAN-African E-network project of India.
The radio says the Indian Minister of Commerce and Industry, Anand Sharma, has paid courtesy calls on Prime Minister HAGE Geingob and Information Minister JOEL Kaapanda. It says schemes like tele-medicine or e-health, an on-line medical consultation program between Indian and Namibian medical experts, have since 2012 been functioning at the Windhoek Central Hospital. The facility is still being run by Indian experts since Namibia has not yet found professionals to run it, despite the looming deadline for its transfer.

However, Minister Kaapanda has requested an extension of the cut-off date, to which Minister Sharma agreed. The visiting Indian Minister has told Prime Minister HAGE GEINGOB, India plans to establish a national information technology institute and a commercial centre.
The Namibian Premier says he is hopeful the centre will create employment and empower many people to start their own businesses.
