LILONGWE (Malawi NewsNow)- Malawi has developed a national diaspora engagement policy to help mobilize resources from its people living in diaspora to develop their nation.
Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, George Chaponda said Monday in the capital Lilongwe that Malawians in diaspora have always longed to get involved in the development of their country through resource mobilization but they had no tool to back and guide them up.
“With the development of such a policy, it will be easy for the to effectively mobilize resources to successfully develop their nation,” he said
Adding that government was hoping that there shall be strengthened partnership and engagement with those Malawians living outside their homeland through the policy.
During the consultations and formulation process of the policy, he added, many Malawians living outside were contacted in order to put in their views on how best the policy could be effective and sustainable.
