Mutharika off to UK this Friday for Business Summit

His Excellency the President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika will on Friday 17 January, 2020 leave the country for London, United Kingdom to attend the United Kingdom-Africa Summit.

According to a statement from the Office of the President and Cabinet, Professor Mutharika will depart Kamuzu International Airport in Lilongwe at 4pm.

The Summit will be hosted by the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, and will bring together businesses, governments and international institutions to showcase and promote the breadth and quality of investment opportunities across Africa.


The Summit will strengthen the UK’s partnership with African nations to build a secure and prosperous future for all our citizens.

It will mobilise new and substantial investment to create jobs and boost mutual prosperity. Malawi’s President, HE Professor Peter Mutharika, is expected to attend the summit, accompanied by ministers, business executives and trade officials.

The summit will be a chance to demonstrate to global business the scale of commercial opportunities in Africa. It will also be an opportunity for the UK to showcase our unique offer to investors and to our African partners. That offer comprises not just UK Export Finance and CDC, both of whom are increasing the scale and reach of their efforts in Africa, but also the wealth of expertise and capital available in the UK.
