Malawi Confederation Chambers of Commerce and Industry [MCCCI], Communications Director, Millie Kasunda, made the remarks in an interview with Maravi Post as they have organised a Lilongwe fair.
Kasunda said regional fair helps companies to learn what their counter parts are doing hence advancing trade activities in the country.
