Minister of Foreign Affairs, Nancy Tembo has expressed satisfaction towards the just ended deliberations of the 11th session of the Malawi-Zimbabwe Joint Permanent Commission of Cooperation (JPCC) which she says will bring success to the social-economic growth of the two nations.

Tembo was speaking in Lilongwe during the closing session of the 11th JPCC .

She said the delibertions intensified bilateral economic exchanges with a special focus on sectors that hold promise for mutual benefit.

“We expect to flourish through sharing ideas and pushing each other towards success. I urge all to ensure that what is agreed is rigourously followed up so that it makes a difference in our counties,” said Tembo.

In his remarks Zimbabwe’s Acting Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Trade, Dr. Joram Gumbo said the prolonged break during COVID 19 pandemic was a huge set back which made certain objectives of the previous agreed Memoranda of Understanding (MoUs) not to be met, as such they will work towards progressing in such areas.

The two ministers welcomed the conclusion of the negotiations on a number of MoU’s on cooperation in the fields of Local Government; Police matters; Gender, Forestry Management, Immigration, Energy, Information and Broadcasting.

Negotiations were also concluded on instruments of bilateral cooperation between the two states’ public broadcasters and news agencies, namely the Malawi Broadcasting Corporation (MBC) and the Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation (ZBC), and Malawi News Agency (MANA) and Zimbabwe Inter-Africa News Agency (NEW ZIANA).
