2015 is of special relevance to the German-Namibian relations, since we are celebrating the 25 year anniversary of Namibian Independence and the concurrent commencement of diplomatic relations between our two countres. Together with its partners from the cultural, economic, political and development cooperation sphere, the German Embassy is thus proud to present the "German Weeks 2015".
