Participants

HE Peter Mutharika, President of the Republic of Malawi
Chair: Rt Hon Lord McConnell of Glenscorrodale, First Minister of Scotland (2001-07)

Overview

Sustaining Malawi’s economic growth, which resurged largely due to development in the agricultural sector, will require a diversification of the country’s international relations. Since his election in May 2014, President Peter Mutharika has sought to rebuild trust in public institutions and to improve relations with traditional donors. Malawi is also reaching out to emerging partners, with India and China presenting potential sources of investment.

At this event, President Mutharika will discuss his government’s strategy for growth and development, priorities for institutional reform and his approach to working with international partners.
