”We are pleased to support the achievement of Canada’s trade and investment objectives and to draw attention to the tremendous opportunities in Malawi that all sizes of businesses in Canada and Malawi can seize. For example, in the energy sector, the Canadian JCM Power is investing in two solar projects in Malawi, of 60 and 20 MW, the first having been recently inaugurated by President Chakwera last November. In the mining sector, the Canadian mineral resources company, Mkango Resources, is also developing rare earth metal mining in Malawi.” – Garreth Bloor, President of the Canada-Africa Chamber of Commerce.
