(Xinhua) -- Namibia will host its annual Crayfish

its inception in 2008, has grown from strength to strength,
cementing the quiet coastal town as a sought-after destination
for both domestic and international tourists.

coupled with other developments such as Luderitz Waterfront and

growth and therefore as a bank we are fully committed to
developing the vibrant business sector and the region as a
whole,” the bank added.
Meanwhile, tourists and Namibian from
all four corners of the country are being urged to support and
attend the festival.
