The professor said that apart from the construction of Malawi University of Science and Technology, his appreciation of Chinese support was on infrastructural development like the new Parliament Building and Presidential Hotels and villas.
“I’m very impressed with Malawi’s intention to further the bilateral relationship with China,” said the Malawi Leader who also met some Malawian students currently studying in China.
