Address by President Jacob Zuma at the Inauguration of the SACU Headquarters Building, Windhoek, Namibia
Let me take this opportunity, first, to express my personal gratitude to our host, President Geingob, his Government and the beautiful people of Namibia for the hospitality extended to us since our arrival. The hospitality afforded to us and indeed the wonderful welcoming remarks by President Geingob have suddenly reminded us that we are one people. We belong to the same region and we share the same history and aspirations.
Statement by H.E. Dr. Hage G. Geingob, President of the Republic of Namibia, at the Inauguration of the Southern African Customs Union Headquarters Building
On behalf of the Government and the people of the Republic of Namibia, I warmly welcome you to Windhoek. Your presence here today is testimony to the importance we all attach to this Union and its continued role in deepening economic integration amongst our five countries. SACU is the oldest customs union in the world and therefore serves as a building block for SADC and other regional economic bodies.
