President Dr Lazarus Chakwera will on 7 October 2023 attend the inauguration of the Rehabilitated, Expanded and Upgraded Nacala Port Infrastructure in Nampula Province Republic of Mozambique, Ministry of Foreign Affairs has announced in a statement.
The ministry says members of the public may appreciate that as a landlocked country, Malawi faces various transportation challenges that distort prices of goods and services in the country.
“The President has, therefore, been working closely with his Mozambican and Zambian counterparts, their Excellencies Mr Filipe Nyusi and Mr Hakainde Hichilema, respectively, and other regional leaders, to address such challenges through infrastructure cooperation,” reads the statement in part.
According to the ministry, the launch of the upgraded Nacala Port Infrastructure adds to the various initiatives the Malawi Government is undertaking to address the systematic economic challenges that the country is facing.
The ministry adds that President Chakwera is expected to depart Kamuzu International Airport at 7:30 am and return at 5:00 pm the same day.
