AU assembly vital for Malawi’s development – Chakwera


President Dr Lazarus McCarthy Chakwera has described his trip to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia where he attended the 35th Ordinary Session of the African Union (AU) Assembly, as important saying the Assembly discussed some issues that Malawi stands to benefit from such interactions.

Chakwera made the remarks on Monday upon his arrival at Kamuzu International Airport.

The President said he had meetings with some donors who will help in the completion of the Cancer Centre in Malawi stressing that it is going to be a great thing as cancer patients will be treated in the country once the project is done.

“It was good to meet with other Heads of State and Government across the continent and the impression that I have is that most of the countries across the continent are facing similar issues and we are trying to collaborate so that we find answers together,” said Chakwera.

The Assembly which was held under the theme “Building Resilience and Nutrition of the African Continent: Accelerate the Human Capital, Social and Economic Development,” also discussed about climate change and how countries can help one another in building better green energy and economies across the continent.

“Our theme this year is similar to what we have been emphasising with regards to nutrition, food security. As Africa, we need to be able to resolve our issues together and deal with such problematic issues in our countries,” he said.
