dc.description.abstractENGLISH ABSTRACT: While compiling the national accounts for SWA/Namibia over the past seven years my interest was drawn to the overwhelming impact mining has on the country's overall economic activity. This tempted me to make a study of the contribution of mining to the economic development of SWA/Namibia. This study was conducted during a period in which virtually no reliable data on the subject were available and it was necessary to make an intensive search for available statistics and to revise, verify and arrange them into an acceptable format. This thesis therefore contains the result of research conducted over that past five years and I hope that it may contribute towards a better understanding of the functioning of SWA/Namibia's economy and the role mining plays in this process. I also hope that the thesis may clarify some of the real economic problems facing the country and offer some suggestions to overcome them in order that the people 9f SWA/Namibia may enjoy the full benefit of the country's mineral resources.en_ZA
