Paul Kwengwere is MITC CEO


The Malawi Investment and Trade Centre (MITC) has appointed economist Paul Kwengwere as the organisation’s chief executive officer.

He also holds a Master of Arts in Economics and a Bachelor of Social Science from the University of Malawi.

Chokhotho said Kwengwere brings to MITC a wealth of knowledge and experience in public finance, strategic management and leadership and development economics.


‘We are very pleased that Paul Kwengwere has accepted the position of new CEO of MITC. We believe he will be a great team leader.

“He has the right skills and capability to steer MITC forward. We wish him the absolute best as he executes his new role,” Chokhotho said.

Kwengwere was not immideately available for comment yesterday.

Prior to joining MITC, Kwengwere founded PMK Associates, a consulting firm, and has been involved in formulating and implementing economic and financial strategies for the Government of Malawi, inter-agencies and donor organisations.
