President Dr Lazarus Chakwera says he is impressed with the efforts of some young engineers who are building motorcycles locally with support of foreign investors.
Dr Chakwera made the remarks in Lilongwe when he recently hosted the young engineers at Kamuzu Palace to appreciate and see for himself samples of the electric motorcycles.”Of my great interest was that these motorcycles produce zero carbon emissions. This kind of reconstruction of key innovations aligns with our goals of fully adopting climate-smart technologies in building a greener and sustainable economy.”I expressed gratitude towards their efforts for they are contributing positively to Malawi’s transition from a predominantly importing to an exporting economy,” said the Malawi leader.
The President said the country is on the right trajectory to realise its dreams in line with the country’s development blueprint, Malawi 2063, which is an agenda to be self-reliant, industrialised and become a middle-income nation.He then pledged his administration’s resolve to create a business-friendly environment for investors in all sectors.
Dr Chakwera has since asked the company to develop a strategy for scaling up production which will resultantly create more jobs and wealth.
