The Malawi Investment and Trade Centre (Mitc) says it will unveil export markets for local products during this year’s International Trade Fair.
Mitc Public Relations Manager, Deliby Chimbalu, said her organisation has organised a seminar to disseminate information on available markets for Malawian products.
“Recently, Mitc has been attending and facilitating SMEs participation at international trade fairs with an aim of promoting Malawian products on the international market. Out of those fairs, we have identified potential markets in India, Dubai, Botswana and Zimbabwe. We would, therefore, like to share this information with the private sector,” Chimbalusaid.
Chimbalu further said participants to the seminar will also take advantage of the meeting to discuss areas of export markets.
“The meeting will also accord exporters, cooperatives, farmers and local financiers a platform to network and initiate partnerships to supply such markets.
“Apart from the Blantyre seminar, similar meetings are also scheduled for Lilongwe and Mzuzu,” she said.
Chimbalu also said, Mitc is facilitating a trade mission to Tete in Mozambique to find export markets for Malawian products.
She said the Tete trade mission is scheduled for June which will coincide with another trade fair in Tete.
