Minister for quality in tourism industry


Minister of Tourism, Wildlife and Culture Michael Usi has said tourism remains a key sector for the country to meet aspirations embedded in the Malawi 2063, the country’s long-term development blueprint.

He was speaking during a graduation ceremony at the Malawi Institute of Tourism.

Usi urged players in the industry to invest in quality of standards as part of making the sector effective.


He then urged the graduating students to use their knowledge in adding value to the tourism and hospitality sector.

He said the tourism sector has been a sleeping giant which has the potential to contribute highly to the economic growth of the country adding that, for that to be achieved, it needs a sound human capital which can emanate from institutions such as MIT.

“I was asking them not to contaminate those diplomas with fake degrees. We need real papers so that people perform according to their education and positions,” he said.


MIT Executive Director Isabel Chakhumbira asked the government to consider expanding campuses of the school to accommodate more students.

“The Blantyre campus is small, with limited space, and we cannot expand. Therefore, we are asking the government to construct a teaching area in Mzuzu to complement the lodge and a training campus in Lilongwe,” she said.

Over 700 students have graduated in different disciplines concerning the tourism and hospitality sector.
