Scotland’s Minister of International Development Humza Yousaf arrives in Malawi today to visit development projects funded by his government.
In a statement released on Sunday, the British High Commission in Lilongwe said Yousaf’s visit will celebrate 10 years of the official link between Malawi and Scotland.
According to the statement, Yousaf will visit the Scottish Government-funded projects to assess progress made in the past decade and will meet beneficiaries of the same.
The statement has quoted Yousaf as having said every year more than 300 000 Scots and two million Malawians benefit from the work carried out through the partnership in areas including education, health, agriculture and renewable energy.
Governments of Scotland and Malawi signed a Cooperation Agreement in November 2005.
The Scottish government projects work alongside the broad and extensive assistance to Malawi provided by the United Kingdom government and both models of assistance demonstrate the commitment of the Scottish people to the people of Malawi.
