The Namibian GDP expanded by 4.3% year-on-year in the third quarter of 2022, slowing from an upwardly revised 6% growth in the previous quarter. On the production side, manufacturing (12.9%), mining (14.9%), and wholesale and retail trade (17.9%) made the biggest upward contribution, while agriculture and forestry (-14.2%) was the biggest drag amid a reduction in livestock marketed for exports due to restrictive measures imposed by South Africa to curtail the spread of Food and Mouth Disease within their borders. On the expenditure side, consumption increased by 9.4%, way below the 20.9% registered a year earlier, as high prices led consumers to reduce spending in anticipation of further increases. Exports were up 14.1% and imports 13.2%. Also, gross fixed capital formation sank by 12.8%. source: Central Bureau of Statistics, Namibia
