Iceland to expand programmes to third district in Malawi

Malawi and Iceland have agreed to expand Iceland-funded programmes to a third district in the country.

This has been disclosed at Kamuzu Palace in Lilongwe during a joint press briefing by president Dr Lazarus Chakwera and Iceland Prime Minister Bjarn Benediktsson.

The joint briefing comes after the prime minister’s five day visit to Malawi where he visited different development projects the Iceland government is implementing in the country.

Dr Chakwera has since appreciated the Iceland government for the support it renders to Malawi in the areas of education, health and fisheries management, among others.

Dr Chakwera says the future of cooperation between Malawi and Iceland is bright and Malawi is committed to strengthening their bilateral ties.

On the other hand, Benediktsson says Malawi is the only country with long standing history on bilateral relations with Iceland and says the relationship is based on mutual trust and respect.

He says Iceland is committed to support Malawi and will expand programmes to another district in the country besides Mangochi and Nkhotakota inorder to reach out to many rural Malawians.

He has since stressed the need for accountability for continued success of the programmes being implemented.

President Chakwera invited the prime minister in the country to celebrate 35 years of bilateral ties between Malawi and Iceland and for the prime minister to appreciate the impact the Iceland government has made in Malawi through its programmes.

The Prime Minister arrived in the country on Sunday and is expected to leave the country today.
