All is set for the launch of the Malawi Mozambique Regional Integration project.

According to the office of Malawi’s High Commission in Mozambique, the project is crucial as among others, it will increase electricity supply and enhance trade which will, in turn, foster economic growth between the two countries.

President Dr Lazarus Chakwera with his Mozambican counterpart, Filipe Nyusi, will lay a foundation stone for the project to mark the launch of the Malawi-Mozambique Power Interconnector Project in Tete, Mozambique.

The project is expected to connect Malawi and Mozambique power systems at 400 kilovolts through a 76-kilometre transmission line which will be constructed from Matambo Substation in Tete Province to Phombeya Substation in Balaka.

The two Heads of State will also engage in bilateral regional power trade in the Southern Africa Power Pool.

Thereafter, President Chakwera and President Nyusi will also visit Nacala Port where they are expected to appreciate the progress being made in the rehabilitation of the Nacala Corridor.

Once completed Malawi will be able to take in more goods through rail. Apart from the bilateral talks with President Nyusi, the Malawi leader is also expected to lay wreaths at Mozambique’s Heroes Monument and sign agreements on different developmental projects.

The launch of the interconnection project will see Malawi being added to the Southern Africa Power Pool and the project will enable Malawi to import 50 Megawatts from Mozambique.

Malawi and Mozambique have been working hand in hand on different developmental projects in terms of trade and transport, among others. Malawians have hope that the interconnection project will improve the energy capacity of the country.
