18/06/2015: AMBASSADOR NECTON MHURA’S INTERVIEW WITH VOICE OF AMERICA.
The Malawi Ambassador to the United States Mr. Necton Mhura has assured investors in the United States that Malawi is a secure investment destination, as it has created conducive investment climate for them. He made the announcement during an interview with Voice of America (VOA), in Washington DC, with the intention of inviting investors to participate in the forthcoming Malawi investment forum which will take place in Lilongwe, from June, 29th- to 30th.
The Malawi envoy said that, the 2015 Malawi Investment Forum is aimed at showcasing investment and trade opportunities in Malawi, promoting specific investment opportunities to both domestic and foreign investors.
The Ambassador, explained that to make it a better investment destination, the Malawi government has set up a One Stop Service Center which is essentially the One Stop Shop, where the investor gets all the front-line permits (Immigration incentives) registration of the company and land.
He said the One Stop Shop will enable investors to avoid running from department to department which can delay the investment process and also inconvenience the investor. The Ambassador therefore said the processes have now come together under one office where the investor can access all these at one go.
During the interview, Ambassador Mhura, informed all interested investors that the Forum will bring together investors from both local and foreign sectors such as tourism, energy, manufacturing, infrastructure, agriculture and services offering access to a wealth of information as it relates to various investment opportunities that are bound in Malawi.
Ambassador Mhura therefore mentioned that it is expected that investors from the United States, Brazil, Russia, India, China, the United Kingdom, and other European and African countries will participate in the investment Forum, which will officially opened by His Excellency the President of the Republic of Malawi, Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika.
