Fellow citizens.

Earlier in the day, we held bilateral talks with President Lazarus Chakwera of Malawi who is also Chairman of the Southern African Development Community (SADC). Zambia and Malawi are only divided by artificial borders, but its peoples are one.

And in order to realise this, President Lazarus Chakwera and I, have committed to fostering peace, unity and democracy for development between the two Nations and for the greater good of its people.

Our discussion was on Agriculture, education, health and trade and investment opportunities. During our press briefing to members of the press at the Malawian State House, we equally stressed the importance of good neighbourliness and the historical and shared values between our two Nations that need to be preserved.

We are grateful to President Lazarus Chakwera and our brothers and sisters of Malawi for the warm reception.

Indeed, we are one people and to ease trade and investment opportunities between our Nations, we will expedite the works at Mwami-Muchinji border.

Thank you achimwene potilandira.

God bless Zambia. God bless Malawi.

Hakainde Hichilema
President of the Republic of Zambia
