Malawi, Scotland set for high level bilateral meeting

Malawi and Scotland are set to have a high level meeting as one way of strengthening the relationship that has been in existence for 160 years.

The meeting is set to take place in Lilongwe at the Bingu International Convention Centre (BICC) in Lilongwe from 28 to 29 September 2018.

This meeting comes as a follow up on the newly signed cooperation agreement by the Malawi president Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika on 23 April 2018 in Scotland.

Chief Executive Officer for Malawi Scotland Partnership, Vera Kamtukule said the meeting will help the two countries to plan ahead on how to achieve the sustainable development goals in both countries.

“We actually want to see on how we operationalize the contents of the agreement that our president signed and look deep into it so that we figure out on how Malawian Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) will operate as well as the Scottish CSOs.”

Kamtukule also highlighted that this will give them a platform to have a good analysis on how the CSOs have operated in the next five years.

She has also commended the cordial relationship that has been in existence between the two countries and has called upon all the CSOs to be cooperative during the meeting.
