address, Executive Chairman of the O&L Group
, Sven Thieme
delight at being able to deliver on the O&L Group
purpose and promise of 'Creating a future, enhancing life' - through the Strand Hotel.
said: "Over the past years Namibia has made great progress in the development of our country and in particular the tourism industry.
The recently concluded COP11 and Adventure Travel World Summit are testimony to that and is in no small measure thanks to the Government's Vision 2030 Goals, amongst others.
They are a powerful incentive for real, tangible and collective action that was only possible because we have all worked together and continue to do so.
We should all be proud of what has been accomplished."
added that it was important that everyone should collectively take development in their hands thereby empowering the people, enhancing inclusive and sustainable growth, environmental sustainability and living up to equity and good governance.
added: "I firmly believe that with an integrated approach where economic, social and environmental elements reinforce each other, we can achieve a developed Namibia - much faster than we think!
applauded Sven Thieme
patience, persistence, commitment and dedication and daring to dream.
