The Bank of Namibia in its September 2020 Quarterly Bulletin revealed that activity in the domestic economy slowed during the second quarter of 2020 compared to the corresponding quarter of the previous year, and that this was mostly seen in the tourism, transport, manufacturing, wholesale and retail trade, construction, and mining sectors. The Bank explains that the slowdown was mainly due to COVID-19 pandemic induced effects evidenced in the collapse in passenger arrivals in the tourism sector and lower cargo volumes in the transport sector as well as a decline in livestock marketing activity in the agriculture sector as a result of farmers restocking during the period under review. Signs of improvement were, however, observed in the communication sector.
