“Through the meeting, attended by executives and philanthropists from the Fortune 500 club among others, I lobbied the audience to invest in Malawi’s agriculture sector which now has great potential in view of our commercialisation drive characterized by mechanized and large scale irrigation schemes,” he said.

Meanwhile the 78th session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) has officially opened with a call for a better world that is rooted in equity, solidarity and universality.
