IBAM demands local business protection

The Indigenous Business Association of Malawi (IBAM) has advised the Tonse-led administration to move into action on the promises to protect small scale businesses in the country.

The call comes a day after Local Government Minister Lingson Belekanyama proposed that foreigners businesses should have their designated trade places in the country.

Reacting to the suggestion, IBAM President Mike Mlombwa said the Association has, for a longtime, fighting for protection of small-scale businesses.

“It is very good move and we are very happy because this government is bringing transformative proposals in relation to what we have been calling for previously as an association,” said Mlombwa.

Mlombwa added that government should work on enforcing the already existing laws.

“Government should make sure that there are good policies that are backing the already prevailing laws for us to be fully protected,” he said.
