Venezuela and Namibia established relations from the moment that this Republic obtained independence, in May 1990. Following the important support that Venezuela provided to Namibia in the process of emancipation, both countries have maintained diplomatic ties, which are increasingly becoming more important and strategic.
Venezuela obtained support from the Namibian Government, in what was the granting of the certification of Venezuelan diamonds within the Kimberley Process scheme, where together with Angola and Botswana, the Bolivarian Republic enjoyed great acceptance and defense of its right to be certified.
Currently, Venezuela and Namibia have 10 signed agreements. The Bolivarian Revolution, through the programs “Sponsor a School” and “International Students” of Fundayacucho, has supported the Namibian people in the social and educational sector.
