He made the call on Tuesday at Sun n Sand in Mangochi when he officially launched a workshop the Reserve Bank of Malawi organized for District Information Officers (DIOs), senior and other staff from the Ministry on financial economic literacy.

Daudi observed that the country has registered a phenomenon stability of the Kwacha and that for the first time it has recorded high foreign reserve.


“We thought of engaging financial authorities from both government and the Reserve Bank to give us a lecture regarding financial stability so that the officers understand terms such as fluctuation, inflation, foreign reserve, stability of the Kwacha and how these impact on the lives


He stressed the need for Malawians to stop importing things that could be found locally in the country saying there is need to uphold the ‘Buy Malawi’ Campaign as that would help boost the country’s economy.


"I would like to emphasize on the need for companies, hotels and restaurants to start appreciating goods made from within our country,” Dausi pointed out.


“It doesn't make sense to import tea from Kenya or India, for instance, when we have very nice Chombe Tea or Mzuzu Coffee which are even recommended in Europe and all over the Western world," he noted.
