By Ellen Banda

The Malawi Confederation of Chambers of Commerce and Industry (MCCCI) has disclosed plans to hold an international trade fair this year after two years without the event due to Covid-19 restrictions.

In an interview with YFM, MCCCI President James Chimwaza said they will announce the date in the next two weeks after their technical committee team finalizes preparation processes.

“Currently we are mobilizing people who want to showcase and promote their businesses and we are on the providing a platform for them to do that,” Chimwaza said.

He said the board is yet to measure the impact brought by not having the event for the past two years to the business industry.

“Definitely the impacts are there both positives and negatives, businesses fall down to those who were lacking platforms to showcase their goods.

“However, this hard time provide an opportunity to companies and people selling hand sanitizers and face masks and through what happened, we have learnt a lesson which will help us to withstand such pressures in future time,” Chimwaza said.

He finally urged business people who are willing to showcase their goods during the event to put in place measures of attracting customers to the event which among others include promotion.
