LONDON, (MaraviPost): Malawi Government’s efforts to eradicate power challenges continue to bear fruits following the signing of an energy deal with a UK company.

President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika clinched the energy deal with UK’s Private Infrastructure Development Group (PIDG).

PIDG aims to complement Malawi’s continued efforts in bringing reliable electricity to rural communities.

According the President, the deal will help in combating poverty in rural areas as it will lay the foundation for economic growth and improvement in people’s lives.

Briefing the media after the meeting PIDG chairperson Mr. Andrew Bainbridge and its Chief Executive Officer Mr. Phillippe Valahu said their team will be coming to Malawi soon to start implementing the project.

Sustainable energy is fundamental to progress and remains a key priority to promote social and economic growth.
