As one of the leading national news and information institutions, New Era Publication Corporation, a wholly-owned publishing house of the Government of the Republic of Namibia, is committed to providing an objective and factual information service to various readership groups, within its authorising environment.

The Corporation, established in terms of the New Era Publication Corporation Act, No1 of 1992, publishes a newspaper titled New Era, that contains well-researched and in-depth news and feature articles on political, socio-economic, cultural, governmental and developmental issues of national, regional and international significance.

Through its diverse articles, written in English and indigenous Namibian languages, the newspaper is founded on the premises that good journalism is a product of fair, accurate and balanced reporting.

As a national publication, it lays special emphasis on reporting on community-related issues, especially as they relate to the rural areas of the country, matters of national interest as well as government-related issues, which may concern the community. This makes the newspaper a widely distributed product, reaching the most remote parts of the country and rural areas, thus providing its readers and advertisers with insight into happenings in all 13 Regions of Namibia through its regional bureaux.

The Corporation, publisher of the newspaper and other publications through special projects initiatives, is an autonomous entity whose policies are set and directed by a Board of Directors. Its day-to-day operations are managed by a Chief Executive Officer assisted by an executive management team.


We see all Namibians having access to the information they require to enable them to take individual and collective responsibility and decisions to be able to participate in an open democratic society at socio-political, cultural and economic levels.


To be a respected, credible and objective source of factual information and analysis on current, local, regional, national and international issues. Working with all stakeholders to achieve best practice in the promotion of a vibrant and democratic society in Namibia.
