Irish Ambassador Aine Hearns on Thursday said her government will continue supporting Malawi in different initiatives in agriculture, nutrition and environment.
She made the remarks at Chitowo in Dedza where delegates from the Irish government appreciated some of the initiatives different partners are implementing in the country with funds from Irish Aid.
“The Government of Ireland, in partnership with Malawi, has signed a new agreement to support Malawi in different initiatives for the next five years.
“This is because a lot of initiatives that are funded by Irish Aid are bearing fruits. We need a full completion on some projects which have just started,” Hearns said.
Dedza district commissioner James Manyetera commended the Irish delegation for visiting Dedza, saying this encouraged implementers of different projects in the district.
The delegation comprised secretary for Foreign Affairs Nail Burgess, director general for Irish Aid Michael Gaffey, chief financial officer John Conlon, head of Cooperative Service Fergal Mythen and director for Africa Fionnuala Gilsenan.n
