THE Evaristus Shikongo Correctional Services were crown the overall winners of the Tsumeb Copper Festival on Saturday.

The festival was held under the theme “Wiring Namibia Towards Industrial innovation”.
Various exhibitors received their trophies for best exhibitors in the various categories at the Tsumeb Copper Festival.
The festival was officially opened by the Minister of Agriculture, Calle Schlettwein, who encouraged the exhibitors to create lasting connections with other business people.
Schlettwein stated that the copper festival is an economic platform for the council to provide opportunities for entrepreneurs to showcase their goods and services.
“Over the past years, the event attracted thousands of visitors and exhibitors. For this year, this flagship event is set to attain similar objectives,” he said.
However, Schlettwein said that beyond these objectives lies the strategic objective to unleash the economic potential of the Triangle economy, requiring greater coordination, integrated planning and outcome-based implementation strategy across the three town councils, regional leadership and central government.
