“Let’s work together in revolutionizing the Agriculture sector”

President Lazarus Chakwera has rallied other African countries and international organization to partner the country in its quest to address the challenges that have placed 9 million Malawians in danger of facing food crisis.

Speaking at an event on the sidelines of the Africa fertilizer soil health summit in Nairobi, Kenya, the Malawi leader cited soil degradation and the El-Nino weather as some of the reasons that have placed Malawi and some countries in the current predicament.

“We consider any discussion about anything that affects food production to be a matter of national security, and so our presence here is not for the sake of participation, but a matter of socio-economic survival,” he said.

Dr Chakwera added that his administration believes the 10 year national action plan on addressing soil health degradation holds the key to revitalizing Malawi’s agricultural productivity and commercialisation endeavours.

He is attending the summit at the invitation of host president, William Ruto.
