The development of this report was in the Scottish Government’s 2017-18 Programme for Government and was an SNP 2016 manifesto commitment.

The Scotland Malawi Partnership welcomes this new report which outlines the significant contribution the Scottish Government has made to supporting sustainable economic development in Malawi.  We especially welcome the renewed commitments to partnership working and engaging civil society in Scotland and Malawi.

Scottish Government Minister Ben Macpherson opens the report by saying:

“Our ambition is to continue to strengthen Scotland’s position as an outward-looking, committed global citizen; and to continue to make our distinctive contributions towards addressing global challenges and injustices, by sharing our knowledge, skills and technical expertise for global good. A key part of that ambition is delivered through our international development work and by contributing towards the achievement of the UN Global Goals, in our partner countries and beyond.”
