Among others the High Commissioner said Britain engagements in Malawi include trade and education. She also assured the Malawi government that the outcome of the elections in the UK will not have any negative impact between the two countries.
British Commissioner said Britain has a number of priority areas that need to work with Malawi. She said a lot of change in Britain is happening and Malawi should expect to benefit a lot in Trade and Investment, Education among others. She added that Malawi has put in place good measures that are very crucial on development.
“The UK would like Malawi to be a prosperous trade and investment partner. We currently have a healthy bilateral trade relationship. But there is still a long way to go before we see real benefits for our people from our trade and investment relationship.
At the British High Commission we want to work hard this year to better understand the connections between British and Malawian companies and where our support can add value to these relationships. There is a short-term imperative program to see increased trade and investment flows as soon as possible,” said Tett.
