IMG was commissioned by JICA to support the establishment of the “State Institution Business Incubator” which aims at promoting SMEs and fostering entrepreneurship.

Advisory Service on SME & Industrial Development to MTI in Namibia

(Mar. 2011 - Mar. 2013)

The goals of the Ministry of Trade and Industry (MTI) are to: (1) develop industry, (2) create employment, and (3) increase people’s incomes through business registration, industry and investment promotion, trade and export promotion, and SME promotion. However, despite the setting of these goals, MTI lacked the adequate organizational and operational structures to plan and implement them. Under contract with JICA, IMG sent an expert in institutional management to MTI who contributed to the effective service delivery of the policies by building organizational and operational structures, and training the Ministry’s officers in effective management and daily operations.
