Speaking ahead of her visit to Malawi, Baldwin said the UK and Malawi enjoy a warm and historic relationship and have worked together on important global issues like tackling conflicts, diseases and organized crime.
“We will remain a steadfast partner of Malawi on its path to growth and prosperity. I look forward to seeing some of the UK investments here and meeting Malawians, from government representatives to members of local communities, to discuss how we can deepen our work together,” said Baldwin.
During her time in the country, the Minister will have discussions with Government ministers, leaders of the opposition parties, business representatives and visit UK aid-funded projects.
These projects include health facilities and small-scale agricultural producers, supporting poverty reduction and economic growth.
It is also expected that the Minister will also visit Majete National Park to see how the Malawi Park Rangers are combating the illegal wildlife trade with training and advice from British military and how local communities can best be involved in these efforts.
The Minister is expected to be in the country on Thursday, 26th July 2018 for a three-day visit after a successful tour in Zambia.
