The Namibia Water Investment Conference 2012 kicked off on Wednesday at the Safari Court Hotel in Windhoek. The conference is aimed at exploring and identifying business opportunities and new technologies for industry players. During the three-day conference, stakeholders from many organisations discussed the enormous investment potential for commercial and industrial water. The Water Investment Conference established a networking platform for technical and financial contributors to exchange information and learn about emerging global trends and innovations in water-based industries. Six themes have been identified to guide the proceedings of the conference. Over 300 delegates are attending the three-day conference, which ends today, 14 September.
