The treaty seeks to transform the region into a fully integrated, internationally competitive, regional economic community with high standards of living for its people.

Speaking during his maiden speech during the 18th COMESA Summit held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia under the theme: Inclusive and Sustainable Industrialization, Mutharika said, the region needs to devise measures to fully utilize market opportunities regionally and globally.

“We must therefore grab this opportunity to ensure that COMESA Industrialization Policy is implemented in order to realize the aspirations and vision as enshrined in the treaty,” he said.

He added that his government attaches great importance to the ideals, principles and objectives agreed by the founding fathers of the organization as reflected in the treaty.

Malawi will remain steadfast and will contribute to the extent possible making the dreams of the founders possible, he promised.
