WINDHOEK, Namibia's Ministry of Information and Communication Technology and Zimbabwe's Ministry of Information, Media and Broadcasting Services have reviewed their information sharing agreement in light of new developments.

The agreement, which was first signed by the two ministries in 2004, was revised by Ministers Tjekero Tweya of Namibia and Dr Christopher Mushohwe of Zimbabwe here Thursday and was signed at the end of a meeting between the two governments, which commenced on Monday, under the leadership of the ministries' permanent secretaries.

"Both Namibia and Zimbabwe are at various stages of implementing digitalisation programmes which when complete, will have far-reaching impacts on the information sectors of the two countries," said Namibia's Mbeuta Ua-Ndjarakana.

Ua-Ndjarakana and his Zimbabwean counterpart, George Charamba, agreed there is a need to take the countries' relationship to greater heights given their pre-independence ties.

Tweya said Namibia and Zimbabwe should not compromise on communication and information technology, while Mushohwe applauded both governments' efforts to create a framework of co-operation in information and media.

The ministries reviewed agreements between the Namibian Broadcasting Corporation and Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation, New Era and Zimpapers as well as the Namibia Press Agency and New Ziana of Zimbabwe.

These media houses have agreed to, among other matters, carry out training exchange programmes, share news, pictures and audio-visual material, respectively.
