European Union reaffirms commitment to Malawi’s corruption fight


Newly unveiled European Union (EU) Ambassador to Malawi Rune Skinnebach has pledged to help President Lazarus Chakwera’s administration in the fight against corruption.

Skinnebach said this in Lilongwe Tuesday, where he presented his letters of credence to Chakwera at Kamuzu Palace.

The new ambassador hailed the standing relations between the EU and Malawi which, he said, were based on a legacy of shared values and development cooperation.


“The EU and Malawi share a common vision and joining forces will help us create a more just, inclusive, climate-smart and multilateral world image,” Skinnebach said.

He also said the EU would be aligning its plans to the country’s Malawi 2063.

“The European Union’s cooperation programme for the next seven years will be developed in close coordination with government departments and the National Planning Commission.


“The EU’s interlinked priorities in Malawi for this period will be green and resilient economic transformation, democratic and economic governance and human development and social inclusion,” Skinnebach said.
