Kamtukule hopes to sell Malawi as perfect destination at US-Africa Summit

Malawi’s Minister of Tourism, Vera Kamtukule, has said the country’s participation at the US-Africa Summit will highlight Malawi as a destination for business in the southern African region.

She was speaking to MBC Digital ahead of the summit, which has attracted more than 1500 U.S. and African public and private sector executives including Heads of State, and international investors, among others.

“For us to invite or attract foreign direct investment, we need to make sure that we are putting ourselves out there, regarding what the ATM strategy is all about, including all the opportunities that are in Agriculture, Mining, and Tourism. So, I do believe that this is important and extremely strategic for us as a country as we are promoting National development but also looking into Africa in terms of trade,” she said.

She added that it will also expand and strengthen its bilateral relations with the United States of America and other countries.

While in Dallas, the US delegation, led by ambassador to the United Nations Linda Thomas-Greenfield will, besides conducting the business summit engagements, also celebrate the 20th anniversary of Millennium Challenge, which has delivered $10 billion in institutional policy reforms and infrastructure investments across the continent, including Malawi.

According to the summit website, Ambassador Greenfield will be joined by senior government and private officials from various sectors in that country, including those from the Millennium Challenge, Office of the President, Export and Import Bank of the United States, trade and development agency, among others.
