Malawi’s President, Dr. Lazarus McCarthy Chakwera, received letters of credence from Agnes Richard Kayola, the designated High Commissioner of Tanzania to Malawi, at Kamuzu Palace in Lilongwe yesterday. During the meeting, Kayola emphasized the importance of enhancing the longstanding business and investment relationship between Tanzania and Malawi. They also focused on regional initiatives, considering both countries’ membership in the Southern African Development Community (SADC). Kayola highlighted the need for improved information sharing on cross-border trade requirements to facilitate efficient border clearance.

Minister of Foreign Affairs, Nancy Tembo, echoed the importance of maximizing opportunities from trade agreements like the African Continental Free Trade Area (ACFTA) for the benefit of people in both Tanzania and Malawi. The discussions also covered areas of cooperation, including connectivity and the potential establishment of a one-stop border post in Karonga, as well as advancements in railway transport.

The meeting took place just a day before the anticipated visit of Tanzania’s President, Dr. Samia Suluhu Hassan, to Malawi. President Suluhu is expected to arrive in the country today.
