Mutharika in trip worth taking, to sign K150bn deals : Off to Brussels, London

After a long time without taking an international trip due to austerity measures, Malawi’s President Peter Mutharika on Monday starts a two-stop key visit in Europe which is likely to be a game change for economic development of the nation as he is expected to put pen to paper on three multimillion dollar financial agreements.

President Mutharika off to Europe in an impressive itenary

President Mutharika is expected to start his tour of duty  holding  bilateral talks with   President of the European Commission, Jean Claude Juncker in Brussels, Belgum.

The Malawi leader has also scheduled an important meeting with  managing director of International Monetray Fund (IMF) Christine Lagarde.

He will also hold bilateral talks with European Union (EU) commissioner for trade Cecilia Malmstrom.

State House directr of communications Bright Molande confirmed about the itenary and said President Mutharika will “bring back huge fortunes for the people of Malawi.”

Molande confirmed that in Brussels, President Mutharika is expected to 185 million euro (about K150 billion) for big projects.

He said the projects include  the 100 million euro for Lulima Project, 70 million euro for nutrition and 15 million euro for financing the National Authoriising Office at the Ministry of Finance, Economic Planning and Development.

Mutharika is also scheduled to be a speaker  at the influential European Development Days’s meeting.

The Europe trip gives Malawi hope  that it will not be just mere tourism trip and that the delegation is also reported to be lean.

From Brussels, the next stop for Mutharika will be  in Britain where the Malawi leader has been invited to address students at the reputable Oxford University on Friday.

He will address Oxford Union  which is one the oldest, most forthright, and respected establishments for education.

World icons including Nelson, Malcolm X, three US Presidents, several British Prime Ministers, Dalai Lama, Mother Theresa and stars of sport and screen have given an address to the Union over the years.

by the way, Brussels would call on leaders to appear before the IMF Chief to explain how their respective countries are fairing especially in the management of finances under the loan agreements and other models. Your president is actually summoned to appear before the chief, to assure IMF of government prudence and possible to get a warning of the withdrawal of the agreement if certain indicators are not corrected or management in both short and long terms. He may not be a happy guy after the meeting, but its still good news there at home- Who said Malawi can do… Read more »

The remarks of the Europian representative on Peter Muthalika,are self-explainatory.This shows that the President’s leadership is null and void and that he is just coercing the matters.We are now 53 years of nationhood but,we can not stand on our own economically.The spokesman for EU,has hit on the nail and that his trip to Brusels and London is a big challenge to Mutalika’s leadership which has been responsible for our down-fall economically and politically and of course, this will retard our economic advancement hence,our political failures.If Muthalika has red the comments of the EU Spokesperson,this is the time to pull up… Read more »

One constituency in southern region is having 5 roads tarred. Plem Construction already on site. Then we have Chikuli road from Chileka starting soon. Unless Lazarus breaks into the southern region and convinces the people that he too is Dpp then he can as well forget. Dpp works on numbers not region. Chitipa belongs to Dpp so is likoma and nkhotakota . Then urban kasungu and lilongwe..the eastern region with atupele..MCP can bark the next 40 years and still not get into govt. MCP must come to seek forgiveness from southern region..
