At regional, continental, and multilateral fora, the two Ministers are also anticipated to discuss topics of shared interest and concern. The SADC Organ on Politics, Defense, and Security Cooperation is now chaired by Namibia, and Zambia will take over as chair in the near future.

Honorable Tom Alweendo, Minister of Mines and Energy, and Peter Kapala, his counterpart from Zambia, are anticipated to sign a Memorandum of Understanding on Cooperation on the Construction of a Natural Gas Pipeline Project (NAZOP) from Zambia to Walvis Bay during the 10th session of the Joint Commission.

The Zambian Ministerial delegation is also scheduled to tour NAMPORT, the Oil Storage Facility, and the Dry Port of Zambia, which were all constructed on land donated by Namibia, in the Port of Walvis Bay. In addition to connecting Zambia to the sea, the Dry Port of Zambia has been a major factor in the increased import and export volumes at the Port of Walvis Bay.
