Any country in the world is an integral part of the world's economy, notwithstanding its economic wealth or power. Namibia is directly involved in world affairs, and it is hoped that its contribution will be positive. To make a positive contribution, the country has to assess its position in the international environment and should strive to improve it. Today, no country can stand alone in the world. As an active participant in world affairs, Namibia should always be prepared to accept international challenges and opportunities, but also to counter any barriers or weaknesses arising from international trade and relations. This paper is intended to provide an overview of Namibia's agricultural trade prospects, while simultaneously giving some broad policy guidelines.
