MITC urge producers to increase value-added exports

Malawi Investment and Trade Center (MITC) has challenged producers to increase volumes of high-quality value-added exports that can compete and gain recognition on the global market.

MITC Chief Executive Officer, Paul Kwengwere, made the remarks in Lilongwe with a Swedish international development organization, We Effect.

Kwengwere further highlighted the need for promoting value chains for agro-processors as a means of stimulating economic growth and combating food insecurity.

Deputy Director of Value Addition in the Ministry of Trade and Industry, Jacinta Chipendo, said value-added products have the potential to bolster economic growth, create employment, and elevate the living standards of people.

Esther Chirwa, We Effect Country Manager, who works with smallholder farmers hinted at the need for linkages between producers and actors in the production process to meet the demands of the global market.

Among others, the stakeholder meeting brought together, representatives from various government ministries, the private sector, value chain platforms and We Effect Project implementing partners.
