Chakwera arrives safely in Texas ahead of US-Africa Business Summit

TEXAS-(MaraviPost)-President Lazarus Chakwera, President on Saturday, May 4, 2024 arrived in the United States of America to participate in a platform for strategic dialogue on key issues and opportunities driving U.S.-Africa trade, investment and commercial engagement.

Upon his arrival in Dallas, Texas , President Chakwera was warmly received by US Government officials and Justice Esme Chombo, the Ambassador of the Republic of Malawi to Washington DC, among other dignitaries.

The President’s attendance at the US-Africa Summit, by invitation from the US government, underlines Malawi’s commitment to fostering bilateral economic relations with the US and exploring avenues for mutually beneficial partnerships.

The four-day summit presents an invaluable opportunity for Malawi to explore potential business collaborations, attract investment and showcase Malawi as an attractive destination for trade and investment, particularly under the ATM Strategy (Agriculture, Tourism, and Mining).

Aligned with the summit’s objective of fostering sustainable business partnerships between the U.S. and Africa, President Chakwera’s active participation in discussions and negotiations will accelerate economic growth and development within Malawi.

Before departing from Lilongwe, Chakwera expressed his delight that Malawian business leaders would also be participating in the conference, emphasising his readiness to promote the ATM Strategy during the summit.

The Summit will convene more than 1,500 U.S. and African public and private sector executives, including Heads of State, international investors, U.S. and African government officials and multilateral stakeholders.

On his way back, President Chakwera will make a stopover in Nairobi, Kenya, where he is scheduled to address the Africa Fertilizer and Soil Health (AFSH) Summit on 9th May, 2024, at the invitation of His Excellency Dr. William Samoei Ruto, President of the Republic of Kenya.

The AFSH Summit aims to bring together all relevant stakeholders to underscore the critical role of fertilizer and soil health in stimulating sustainable pro-poor productivity growth in African agriculture and to forge consensus on an African Fertilizer and Soil Health Action Plan, as well as the Soils Initiative for Africa.

President Chakwera is expected to return to Malawi on Friday, May 10, 2024, through the Kamuzu International Airport.
