President Prof. Peter Mutharika says he has clinched foreign investment deals with various investors during his stay in New York, USA where he attended the 69th Session of the UN General Assembly (UNGA).
Mutharika disclosed this upon arrival at Kamuzu International Airport (KIA) in Lilongwe on Wednesday.
He said the 69th UNGA had been a very fruitful event to Malawi and that the President and his delegation had met various business people and serious investors with whom they had discussed investment opportunities available in Malawi.
“We had meetings with several business communities and investors and they were also interested to meet us,” explained Mutharika. “We discussed foreign investment and I hope to see them coming to Malawi very soon.”
Mutharika said he would soon call for a press briefing probably to be held in Blantyre to give the public a detailed report of what transpired at the 69th Session of the UNGA which was held at the UN headquarters in New York from 16 – 29 September 2014.
Mutharika’s plane touched ground at KIA at around 14:40 and he was welcomed by the Vice President, Saulos Chilima, senior Government officials and ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) supporters.
