Namibia is also a major regional salt producer with two large salt works at Swakopmund and Walvis Bay, where brine from the sea is crystalised in brine pans. With the reintegration of Walvis Bay last year, Namibia's salt output more than quadrupled; the main markets are the South African chemical industry and increasingly West Africa.
