Israel to assist Malawi in agriculture, Slovan in hydroelectric power

The Israeli Government has  expressed willingness to assist Malawi to manage its water resources to enable the country to be food-secure.

“Malawi receives a lot of rainfall and has plenty of water. What is required is for the nation to manage the water. It is my hope that our government will strive to assist Malawi in managing the water so that there is food in the country,” Israeli Ambassador to Malawi, Gil Kaskel told  journalists after presenting his letters of credence to President Joyce Banda at Kamuzu Palace in Lilongwe.

Kaskel said: “We started as a poor nation without water or land, but we managed to come out of that situation through hard work and dedication.”

Also presenting letters of credence to President Banda this week,  diplomat  Alexander Ilascik from the Republic of Slovak  said he discussed with President Banda issues on agriculture, infrastructure, industry and tourism sectors.

“I looked at Malawi and I found out that Malawi is such a beautiful country and tourism can be best for Malawi,” Ilascik said, adding that their country was also good at hydro electric power,” he told reporters.

“We have expertise in the field of hydro electric power. It is our aim that we assist Malawi in the field as well,” he said.

Also briefing reporters after presenting his letters of credence to President Banda, the Belgium Ambassador to Malawi, Adam Koenraad expressed his country’s satisfaction with how the Malawi Government transferred power following the death of the former president.

Koenraad said his government had five million euro for health and agriculture sectors in Malawi.
