The Malawi leader was speaking in London, the United Kingdom after he met with Professor Ngaire Woods, the founding Dean of the Blavatnik School of Government at Oxford University.
The President presented her with a blueprint by which the University and his Administration can work together on human capacity development, which is one of the President's three accelerators for creating jobs, wealth and food security.
While in the UK, the Malawi leader alongside other invited African Presidents will be attending the Global Education Summit which has commenced today and will run through to 29 July.
The UK and Kenya are bringing world leaders together through the Summit to invest in education in the world's most vulnerable countries.
