The High Commission of India in Malawi has reiterated its commitment to the provision of support to Malawi in areas such as trade.
High Commissioner of India to Malawi, Shri Gopalakrishnan, said this in Lilongwe during 75th Independence Day commemorations on August 15 in Lilongwe.
He said this year’s celebration was unique as India was commemorating India@75 Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav—a government of India initiative meant to celebrate and commemorate 75 years of progressive India and the glorious history of its people, culture and achievements.
“In Malawi, India@75 will definitely have a bearing; that is, judging from past interactions of [officials of] the two governments in all aspects. Several projects were completed in Malawi through lines of credit, gifts and grants,” Gopalakrishnan said.
In June this year, India and Malawi signed a Memorandum of Understanding in the field of trade of pigeon peas.
Through the agreement, Malawian farmers would be having a guaranteed market for the export of 50,000 metric tonnes of pigeon peas annually. This will happen for the next five years.
As part of celebrations, the High Commission of India planned a number of activities.
One of the events will be on August 28, when the High Commission of India would be participating at the Lilongwe Motor Show at Lilongwe Golf Club to showcase made-in-India automobiles.
