‘’We are pleased to support the realization of Canada’s trade and investment objectives and to draw attention to the massive opportunities in Malawi which all sizes of companies from Canada and Malawi can seize upon. For example, in the energy sector, Canada’s JCM Power is investing in two solar projects in Malawi, of 60 and 20 MW, with the former recently inaugurated by President Chakwera last November. In mining, Canadian mineral resources firm, Mkango Resources, is also developing rare earth metals mining in Malawi.’’ - Garreth Bloor, President of The Canada-Africa Chamber of Business.
