The Foundation for Democracy in Africa (FDA) says it is eager to learn President Ngwazi Dr Bingu wa Mutharika’s strategies for fighting hunger and increasing Malawi’s economic growth.

FDA president Fred Oladeinde said this on Wednesday in a press statement ahead of the 12th annual US-Africa Trade and Investment Conference (AfriCANDO) 2009 in the USA starting Friday.

Ngwazi Dr Bingu wa Mutharika is scheduled to attend the conference whose theme is ‘Smart Appropriate and Resource Efficient Technologies for Rural Communities’.

At the conference, Ngwazi Dr Mutharika is expected to be awarded the Medal of Glory, FDA’s highest honour which is presented to leaders who have dedicated their professional lives to the promotion of democratic principles of liberty, freedom and development in Africa.

Oladeinde said Mutharika has proven track record in using smart, appropriate and resource-efficient technologies to advance rural community development.

Meanwhile, President Ngwazi Dr Bingu wa Mutharika and his entourage have arrived in Miami for the conference after a successful three day trip to Brazil.

Whilst in Brazil, the Malawi government and the Brazilians signed a number of trade agreements.

Ngwazi Dr Bingu wa Mutharika was in Brazil, at the invitation of the country’s President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva.

The Malawian leader told journalists on his departure at Kamuzu International Airport that he has been good friends with President da Silva for a long time-Mana/Malawi Digest.
