Malawi: Govt Commends EU for Development, Humanitarian Aid

President Professor Peter Mutharika Friday commended the European Union (EU) for the development and humanitarian aid rendered to the country. Speaking when he held an audience with EU delegation in Lilongwe at Kamuzu Palace, Mutharika said EU is one of the biggest partners Malawi has since 1975 and the country has benefited a lot from the partnership. He said EU has engaged herself in assisting the country in the areas of agriculture, education and governance among others. "As of now EU is helping the country in humanitarian aid by assisting the 6.7 million people who have been affected by hunger and drought due to climate change. This is the biggest number the country has had," Mutharika explained. He added that every year government is enrolling programmes aimed at ending the hunger situation by boosting irrigation system in the country. Mutharika further said investment forums are done to promote agriculture, education and tourism among others. He then asked the EU, development partners and the private sector to work together with government to develop the country.
