British Envoy Meets NPC Boss

British Deputy High Commissioner to Malawi Ms. Olympia Wereko-Brobby today met with National Planning Commission (NPC) Director General Dr. Thomas Munthali at NPC offices in Lilongwe where they discussed various issues, including how the British government and other development partners can support the accelerated implementation of the Malawi 2063 First 10-Year Implementation Plan (MIP-1).

The discussion specifically focused on the areas of mining, megafarms, carbon credits and macro-economic management.

In her remarks, Wereke-Brobby said the British government alongside other development partners remain willing to support Malawi to achieve its development goals, including through technical assistance that could help Malawi secure beneficial deals with mining companies.

She also said the development partners have already lined up various forms of financial support to Malawi as long as the country remains on track with the International Monetary Fund.

On his part, Munthali urged the British government and other development partners to support Malawi in improving its production sectors as that is the only way the country can boost the economy and generate resource required to reduce its debt and increase fiscal space.
