Chilima said at a time when Covid-19 is limiting us from physical interaction, such technical assistance for virtual communication is critical and highly valued.

“In general, the US government’s technical support to the Malawi government’s Reforms agenda is highly appreciated.
“The US government has also been crucial in supporting the review of the Public Service Bill which calls for appointments by merit in the public service,” said the Vice President after the virtual meeting with Scott.
He assured the envoy that the Tonse administration as led by Lazarus Chakwera is determined to implementing the reforms agenda for the benefit of ordinary Malawians through enhanced efficiency, effectiveness and professionalism in the public sector.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
