The Malawi Confederation of Chambers of Commerce and Industry - MCCCI says is set to meet next month in March to assess if it can hold this year’s International Trade Fair.

MCCCI President, James Chimwanza told Zodiak Online that while the COVID-19 pandemic outlook is positive in the country, authorities need to sit down and assess the pandemic trends internationally.

“Authorities are meeting mid next month on possibilities of holding this year International Trade Fair. But first, we need to access COVID-19 situation in other countries before deciding on a way forward,” Chimwanza said.

Economist, Professor Ben Kalua hopes the meeting will look into issues that will minimize risks to both the business and the pandemic.

“I believe several stakeholders will be engaged to look into issues that are aimed at minimizing risks to the business as well the pandemic,” Kalua said.

For the past two consecutive years thus 2020 and 2021, MCCCI failed to hold International Trade Fair owing to Covid-19 restrictions.
