The Republic of Egypt through its Embassy in Lilongwe, with Malawi are planning for a big deal that will see Agriculture sector be revitalized.

Speaking at a conference held on Monday morning at Agriculture Ministry office in Lilongwe, Egyptian Ambassador to Malawi, Hassan Shawky said Egypt and Malawi have had strong bilateral relations since the time these two countries established their relationship over 50 years ago.

Shawky said that it is against this long time bilateral relations that Egypt and Malawi are interested in investing into Agricultural sector mainly in four areas of national importance as they are planning to establish a 70 Hector of land Egyptian Model Farm in Malawi at LUANAR and providing capacity buiilding and training to people in Agriculture sector.

He added that the plans include to construct a tobacco factory that will help to provide readily available market for Malawi tobacco farmers as well as planting a fertiliser manufacturing factory in Malawi that will help in creating employment to many Malawians and also help reduce import of fertilizer from other countries which is too expensive.

Minister of Agriculture and Food Security, Lobin Lowe, MP, assured the Ambassador that his Ministry is going to facilitate the development of the Investments because these will help to boost Agricultural Sector in Malawi.

Lowe further said it is his vision to change the face of Agriculture Sector through heavy Investments by experts from the county that survives from no rain-fed Agriculture but only through irrigation.

“Chakwera Government will work hand in hand with all developmental partners for a win-win situation in Malawi.” Lowe hinted during this courtesy call meeting with this Egyptian Ambassador His Excellency Hassan Shawky.

Malawi depends on Agriculture as backbone of its economy and over 80% of nation population lives on subsistence farming.
