The People's Republic of China Tuesday donated Information Communication Technology (ICT) equipment and office furniture worth 760, 000 US dollars (570 Million Kwacha) to the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Tourism in a spirit of promoting development in the country.
Chinese Ambassador to Malawi, Shi Ting Wang made a symbolic presentation of the donation to the Minister of Trade, Industry and Tourism, Henry Mussa in the Capital, Lilongwe.
Wang said the donation was destined to lift the working conditions in the Ministry to a new level.
"I understand that the Government had a lot of challenges in the area of office equipment and furniture, so I believe that a comparatively comfortable working environment to the officials of the Ministry can help serve the Malawian people better," he said.
Wang further highlighted that China has a big investment in Malawi where hundreds of Chinese small and medium enterprises provide 20,000 working opportunities to local people.
