Currently, Zimbabwe’s exports to Namibia comprise: pharmaceutical products, iron and steel products, agricultural inputs, leatherproducts, among others. According to Trade map, Namibia’s import bill in 2014 was $7.4 billion with Zimbabwe supplying $17.7 million.

In 2014, Namibia was the tenth largest export destination for Zimbabwean products. Trade between Zimbabwe and Namibia is governed by the SADC Trade Protocol and the Zimbabwe-Namibia Preferential Trade Agreement, which offer preferential treatment to qualifying products into each other’s market.
