President Chakwera discussing developmental issues with UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson

The United Kingdom (UK) has committed to supporting Malawi in the fight against COVID-19 and Climate Change.

Malawi President Lazarus Chakwera who is currently in the UK for Global Education Summit has revealed the development.

“One of the reasons I agreed to attend the Global Education Summit in person was to leverage the sidelines of the event to hold bilateral talks with Dominic Raab, the UK’s Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth, and Development Affairs,”

“I am happy to report that I have secured the British Government’s commitment of additional support towards Malawi’s fight against Covid-19 and Climate Change,” Chakwera says.

The Malawi President also had bilateral talks with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

According to State House Press Office, the two leaders discussed a wide range of issues, including the special relationship between their two countries and the desire to see their partnership grow in such areas as climate change, girls’ education, and trade.

State House Press Office Adds,” The Prime Minister also expressed both his joy at seeing the President and his desire to cement a Malawi-UK partnership to leverage green technologies in Malawi. The two leaders have agreed to discuss this further when they meet again at COP26 in Glasgow, Scotland in November.”
