In April 2020, the Namibian Government announced the first phase of the Economic Stimulus and Relief Package to address urgent funding needs in the health sector, mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on the economy, and support livelihoods at household level through the launch of the Emergency Income Grant (EIG).


Hon. Ipumbu Shiimi, Minister of Finance joins us live from Namibia to discuss the economic impact of  COVID-19 and how the government’s relief package has been supporting local businesses and citizens.
