President Chakwera lobbies for more funding from OPEC Fund


Chakwera made the request on the sidelines of the Least Developed Countries (LDCs) during a discussion with Abdulhamid Alkhalifa – the Director General of OPEC Fund for International Development.

He said topping up the funding would go a long way in helping Malawi in its quest to graduate to a middle income country.
