Funds shortage sinks //Kharas conference

09 August 2019 | Business

KEETMANSHOOP - The office of the //Kharas governor said its investment conference that was schedule to take place next month will only take place next year due to a lack of money.

The conference, aimed at creating a platform for the sharing of ideas on promoting the region as an investment location and promoting private and public projects that are ready for investment, is spearheaded by the Office of the Governor.

Speaking at the Economic Stream Workshop on Wednesday, the governor’s personal assistant, Lukas Shekwaanyena, said the conference will have to take place in June or July 2020.

Shekwaanyena said the working committee that was established in March this year to organise the event is now looking for funds for the conference.

“When the conference was set to take place, there was no funds available or direct commitment of funds, so now we have identified possible funders that we need to approach to secure funds for the conference,” he said. - Nampa
