New British High Commissioner, David Beer, has today presented his Letters of Credence to President Lazarus Chakwera.

The ceremony took place at the Kamuzu Palace in the capital Lilongwe.

Speaking after presenting the letters, Beer said he is delighted to be taking the role of commissioner at a time of “renewed optimism” in Malawi.

“We are ready to support the reform agenda and help Malawi act on it. Our intention is to drive the economic agenda, invest in successful countries and create jobs,” he said.

Beer also promised to support Chakwera’s government in climate change fight.

“I was inspired by the President’s speech where he talked about issues to do with climate change and the environment. It is important that we support each other in coming up with tangible solutions to address adverse effects of climate change.

“We are hosting the 26th Conference of Parties (COP26) in November next year and as such we are determined to assisting Malawi attain its potential in addressing environmental degradation,” he said.

Beer replaces Holly Tett.
