The People’s Republic of China says it will continue offering assistance in various areas in Malawi to ensure that the country achieves economic growth and better living standards.
The Chinese Ambassador Shi-Ting Wang said as a dutiful companion, China was ready to bring many tangible benefits to Malawians through its support in different fields.
The Ambassador was speaking on Monday when he handed over boreholes and assorted items such as computers, mobile phones, television sets, school bags and footballs in Mulanje.
Shi-Ting Wang said his government would in future be building community colleges, roads and schools and intensify its support in electricity generation as well as provide to Malawi more scholarships and short term training opportunities in various fields.
“We have every reason to believe that the China-Malawi relation will be much closer and people-to-people exchanges will be more intense,” he said.
In 2016, the Chinese government spent about $50 million (over K35 billion) to assist Malawi in various fields.
Receiving the donations, member of Parliament (MP) for Mulanje South West George Chaponda commended China saying the gesture “complements government’s efforts in ensuring that facilities that are available in urban areas must also be found in rural areas.” n
