NaCC's Second Strategic Plan 2015-2020

Dear Stakeholders,

Kindly peruse the Commission's second Strategic Plan 2015-2020 to familiarise yourselves with the expanded focus on enforcement implementation.  

Dr Sackey Akweenda - Chairperson of the NaCC Board of Commissioners : "Strategic planning is a necessary condition that enables the NaCC to develop and effectively execute its mandate. We strive to remain relevant and to build an institution known for its operational efficiency and customer service."

Mr Mihe Gaomab II - Chief Executive Officer of the NaCC : "Whilst the strategic goals of the previous strategic plan focused on establishing and operationalising the regulatory mandate of the Commission based on conducting research, developing partnerships and building the capacity of the organisation, this strategy places emphasis on the enforcement activities of the Commission and the use of advocacy and the promotion of compliance as the twin pillars of competition regulation. Furthermore, ensuring compliance with the law will be informed by research-based evidence and high quality analysis that guides decision-making and increases operational excellence."

In a judgement delivered on 17 March 2016, the High Court of Namibia, found that NAMAF and constituent Funds fall in the category of undertakings as they are business for gain and thus cannot be exempt from the application and force of the Competition Act 2 of 2003.
