Six diplomats have presented their letters of credence to President Peter Mutharika in Lilongwe.
The diplomats have pledged to strengthen relations with Malawi and support its developmental activities.
Speaking after presenting the letters, Brazil’s Ambassador to Malawi, Artur Jose Saraiva De Oliveira, expressed commitment to supporting Malawi in areas such as agriculture.
“We plan to do a lot things on policy cooperation because we have expertise. I am sure that, in a very small village here, someone has devised a way of doing something that we can benefit from. In the agriculture sector as well, we are very strong,” he said
Ambassador of Denmark to Malawi, Einar Jensen, said his government would help Malawi improve investments in the energy sector.
“I believe there might be scope for mere cooperation between our two countries and I shall do my best in looking for investments and partnership—for instance, energy—which is one of the strong areas of Denmark, providing close to 50 percent of our electricity from wind farms,” he said
The other envoys are Peter Van Vacker Acker from Belgium, Erick Frank A Saizonou from Benin, Noah Gal Gendler from Israel and Abdoulie Bojang from Gambia.
Bojang stressed the need for African countries to work together.
