Global Affairs Canada and the Ministry of Trade of Malawi, in partnership with the Canada-Africa Chamber of Business, are facilitating a virtual trade mission to Malawi to showcase the opportunities on offer in the energy and mining sectors.
The online event will provide Canadian companies with information on commercial opportunities in Malawi, highlight current and future projects in the energy and mining sectors, and connect Malawian companies with Canadian companies and investors.
Malawi has committed to an ambitious plan for economic growth, called Agenda 2063, and is seeking opportunities to expand commercial engagement to support that growth. Malawi is also currently chair of the Southern African Development Community (SADC), which has committed to increase connectivity in energy and trade infrastructure in the region. SADC is a large market numbering over 350 million people and a priority region for Canadian investment.
In addition to senior representatives of the Government of Canada and the Government of Malawi, featured speakers will include:
- Burton Kachinjika, President, Chamber of Mining and Energy
- Rosemary Mkandawire, CEO Power Market Limited
- Ana Paola Guadarrama, Senior Export Manager, Business Development and Sales, Canadian Commercial Corporation
- Justin Woodward, Founder and Head of Africa, JCM Power
