Presided over by His Excellency Dr. Lazarus M. Chakwera President of the Republic of Malawi. BICC Banquet Hall, Lilongwe. Monday 4th April 2022.
I have launched the 20-year Malawi National Tourism Investment Masterplan in Lilongwe. The masterplan, scheduled from 2022 to 2042, is a guide on how Malawi will implement 10 priority tourism projects across the country as one way of transforming the country through tourism development.
Your government fully understands how tourism development remains one of the major drivers of economic development for it is encompassed in the urbanisation thrust within the Malawi 2063. It should therefore be given the attention it deserves by our policymaking apparatus.
Investing in our tourist attraction sites will make our beautiful country a regional and international tourist destination thereby creating more jobs and bring more forex into the economy.
We promise to invest adequate political will and resources to the success of the investment masterplan.
We will create an enabling environment for the private sector for them to be reliable partners in the growth of the Tourism industry in the country.
I call upon you all to contribute effectively to the success of this masterplan.
