TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Namibia is keen to take notes from Indonesia on maintaining food security and water sustainability as well as providing people with clean water, an Indonesian legislator who recently visited the African country said.

"Namibia does not have abundant water resources so it is keen to learn how Indonesia maintains water sustainability to enable its people to get access to healthy water," Putu Supadma Rudana informed.

In a press statement received on Tuesday, June 13, 2024, he said that he led a delegation from the House of Representatives' (DPR's) Inter-Parliamentary Cooperation Agency (BKSAP) during their recent visit to Namibia.

The BKSAP delegates met with their Namibian counterparts during the visit and discussed issues related to food security, water sustainability, agriculture, fisheries, education, and culture, he added.

According to Rudana, due to its climatic conditions, Namibia continues to grapple with droughts and limited water resources while Indonesia, as an archipelagic country, is managing its water resources relatively well.

Indonesia recently hosted the 10th World Water Forum in Bali, which pushed for the establishment of a parliamentary caucus to accelerate the provision of solutions to global water problems, he noted.

Therefore, the House is ready to bridge Indonesia and Namibia's endeavors to expand any potential collaboration and help the two nations develop water technology to solve water problems, he said.

In addition to water sustainability, Namibia considers agriculture, fisheries, and education as important sectors, Rudana informed.

The two countries have been collaborating in the agricultural sector through Gadjah Mada University and the University of Namibia since 2009, he added.

During their recent meeting with their Namibian counterparts, the BKSAP delegates also explored the possibility of promoting Namibia as one of the hubs for Indonesian products in Africa.

They also discussed opportunities to increase Indonesian tourist arrivals in Namibia as it has become a free-visa country for Indonesian citizens holding diplomatic, official, and regular passports, he said.

As reported earlier, to boost bilateral ties, President Joko Widodo has encouraged Indonesian state enterprises to take part in a project to build thousands of public houses in Namibia.

He has also encouraged state-run construction firm PT Wijaya Karya (Wika) to participate in an infrastructure project in Namibia.
