Govt optimistic about reviving international agro-business deals

Government trade entities have expressed optimism about reviving the Malawi-South Sudan agro-produce deal.

Among its many agro-based deals, the Malawian government entered into an agreement with South Sudan to supply 180,000 metric tons of maize, maize flour, groundnuts, and beans.

However, in the initial year of the five-year deal, Malawi’s supply could not satisfy the demand.

Nonetheless, the Malawi Trade and Investment Centre (MITC) Chief Executive Officer, Paul Kwengwere, says this time around, Malawi will satisfy the demand through mega farms.

Kwengwere said taking into consideration the current food status, they will resume maize and maize flour exports in the next two years.

Managing Director for the Export Development Fund, Fredrick Chanza, stated that their South Sudanese counterparts have assured them that there is still a huge demand for local agro produce.

Chanza added that they have noted areas needing improvement and that now the focus is on meeting the demanded quantities.
