The Namibian Economic Ferfomance During 1990-93 - An Overview
AbstractNamibia is now in its fourth year as an internationally recognised sovereign, independent state, and it is of interest to understand and consider the policy directions opted by the Government to achieve the objectives of growth' and equity. Obviously, three years in the history of a state do not represent a period sufficient to make a valid far reaching evaluation of its performance, but outlining and analysing the socio-economic development and institutional changes of this period will afford inferences regarding the foundations being laid for future social and economic development. The policies, development objectives and associated strategies of the Namibian state are discussed in the first section of this report, this section also includes a discussion of institutional changes, particularly the setting up of the administrative structure and, briefly the macro-economic and sectoral performance. section two discusses human resource development and utilization together with issues related to population growth and its distribution; health and education; employment and unemployment (utilizing newly available Population Census data). The third section deals with problems and progress in relation to poverty, income and assets distribution. Concluding remarks constitute the final section of the report.
