The Meeting was presided over by the Director of Private Sector Development from the Ministry of Industry, Trade, and Tourism, Ms. Esther Mwimba. The National AGOA Steering Committee is co-chaired by the Malawi Investment and Trade Centre and the Malawi Confederation of Chambers of Commerce and Industry. The committee will be meeting on a quarterly basis with the next meeting scheduled for July 2020.
