Malawi leader Mutharika to attend UK-Africa Investment Summit Jan 2020

Malawian President Peter Mutharika will  travel to London in January 2020 to attend the UK-Africa Investment Summit where he will seek to  seal concrete trade and investment deals for the nation .

President Mutharika meets Zainadi Badawi of BBC  in London during 2018 visit

The summit will be hosted by the UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson on January 20 2020.

Mutharika is expected to be accompanied by ministers, business executives and trade officials.

Malawi Investment and Trade Centre Public Relations Manager, Deliby Chimbalu, said the government has identified various projects that it will market at the  summit  which will strengthen the UK’s partnership with African nations and mobilise new and substantial investment to create jobs and boost mutual prosperity.

Chimbalu said local entrepreneurs will also use the platform to share knowledge with the counterparts in the UK and others from Africa.

In Lilongwe, British High Commission’s Charge d’Affaires, Gary Leslie, said: “Under Prime Minister Boris Johnson, the UK has a vision of working together with African countries on innovation, forging new investments with sustainable impact that creates jobs and boosts prosperity for all through an enduring partnership.”

He added that the summit will be a chance to demonstrate to global business the scale of commercial opportunities in Africa.

“It will also be an opportunity for the UK to showcase our unique offer to investors and to our African partners. That offer comprises not just UK Export Finance and CDC, both of whom are increasing the scale and reach of their efforts in Africa, but also the wealth of expertise and capital available in the UK,” said Leslie.

The UK government is looking to establish long-term and mutually beneficial partnerships with African nations.

In 2018, the UK Government announced its ambition to be the largest G7 investor in Africa by 2022.
By October 2019, the previous 18 months had seen total trade between the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa growing by more than 7 percent.

The worst president ever. I think he has smelt a rat of the judgment to kick him out of the office of the president. Too much moving but benefit nothing he was supposed to be at home until judgment is passed else eeesh Malawi is at risk with this man made of tippex.

What a waste of time and resources. Last time he went to Russia and claimed that Putin will invest in Malawi.
During campaign he said that Malawi will be like Singapore if elected. Bodza Mlopwana

Koma agogo amenewa ine ndilibe nawo mawu. Kodi matako ali ndi minga? What’s the duty of vice president or responsible ministers? Is it not cheaper just to send such representatives? Cry my beloved Malawi.

How long will this old man going to stay in the UK for……..The election case judgement is due last week of January. I know that the president would like to get as much allowance as.he can get before leaving office but I think that this trip is ill timed.

We don’t want any more delays on the judgement, can the people organising this UK trip make sure that this old man is back in the country before the 31st of January….

Koma that photo of APM meeting BBC’s Badawi is an extreme poke in the eyes of Chilima; nothing less. Especially considering how the latter’s miserable performance in a HARDtalk interview with the same Badawi.
Asa.
