Malawi National Council of Sports board chairperson, James Chuma, asked for support from the United Kingdom Sport Office.
Chuma said in a telephone interview, soon after coming out of the meeting in London on Friday, that he had asked for technical support. He described the meeting as “fruitful”.
“I am coming from meeting UK Sport Office with Robert Morini, Head of International Relations at 21 Bloomsbury Street Central London. We have discussed many issues in relation to sports development in Malawi. As a country we need to interact and learn from those that have developed,” he said.
Chuma said Morini has promised to assemble a team of people from various federations in the UK to visit Malawi in the near future to exchange ideas on how to develop sport in the country.
“We are looking at the areas of infrastructure, technical support, training and exchange programmes. Our counterparts are willing to support us. I will share all the details once I return home,” said Chuma, who is expected to return tomorrow after a week-long exercise in the UK.
Chuma said the government was doing a lot to develop sport in general in Malawi.
“Remember we have the Presidential Initiative on Sport policy tournaments. This is one way of leading by example,” he said.
