The 2024 Malawi Agriculture Investment Forum is underway in Lilongwe.

In his opening remarks, Assistant Representative of the Food And Agriculture Organisation (FAO) in the country, George Phiri, said there’s a need for honest discussions on how investments in the agriculture sector should be strategically deployed to transform food systems and improve livelihoods, especially of farming communities.

He said using the most advanced tools available, including advanced geospatial modelling, and analytics, the hand-in-hand initiative has identified the biggest opportunities to raise the incomes of households and reduce the prevailing inequities and vulnerabilities of the rural poor.

“As we all know, these people are still the majority of the population. The Government of Malawi has focused on investments across the country. Among thematic areas that include production and productivity by the addition of processing, and post-harvest management depending on the potential of each one of the identified value chains, the investment locations have been informed by technology analysis that has been used as a learning tool for the investment decisions,” said Phiri.

The Minister of Agriculture, Sam Kawale is in attendance.

During the function, presentations on Malawi’s Agriculture Investment Plans developed under the Hand in Hand Initiative will be delivered that all speak to leaving no one behind in inclusive economic growth by reducing inequalities. In addition, roundtable discussions and matchmaking on the proposed investment opportunities will be done.
