Chamber steps up 2018 trade fair preparations


The Malawi Confederation of Chambers of Commerce and Industry (MCCCI) says this year’s international trade fair show is expected to be held between May 24 and June 3 under the theme, “Industrialisation: Basis

for Trade Competitiveness”.

The theme, according to MCCCI, has been considered to reflect the need for the Malawi economy to produce and trade in goods with value addition, a scenario that can only be possible through industrialisation.


MCCCI Head of Communications, Millie Kasunda, said during a presser held in Blantyre that the main objective of the trade fair is to provide a platform for local and international participants to showcase their goods and services to potential customers and network with patrons and other participants.

“The fair also allows local and international exhibitors to share information on business in their respective countries and develop linkages with suppliers and customers across the borders,” Kasunda said.

She stated that this year’s theme focuses on the need to adopt a more export–oriented industrialisation as a basis for achieving trade competitiveness.


“We are optimistic of 100 percent participation of local and international exhibitors, as we continue receiving applications every day to participate in the fair. The rate of applications for participation is likely to accelerate as we draw towards May 11 2018, being the last day of receiving applications,” Kasunda added.

So far, companies from Mozambique, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, among others have confirmed participation to the fair, now in its 30th year.
