"As we stand, the Ministry of Agriculture, Water and Forestry is ready to finalize the draft agreement. Negotiations between the two governments are well advanced. After everything has been submitted then we will look forward to having a Chinese delegation visit the farms and the production units," he said.
Namibia is looking to export 5 to 10 percent of the 75 million cartons of its total export volume to China. "We are looking forward to starting exports next season. We are hoping to grow the market once we start exporting to China," Bothma said.
Namibia currently exports grapes to Britain and European Union markets. ■
