Address to MSPs by the President of Malawi


President of the Republic of Malawi Dr Joyce Banda said "Scotland has a very special place in the heart of all Malawians" as she addressed the Scottish Parliament on 19 March 2013.

Dr Banda called on Scottish investors to invest in Malawi because it was "Scotland's African home".

The president said "The melody from the warm heart of Africa is sweet again."

She called for the continuation of these "historic links" to the mutual benefit of the people of Malawi and Scotland.

First Minister Alex Salmond thanked the president for her address and highlighted the "enduring friendship between the people of Scotland and the people of Malawi".

Mr Salmond said the relationship between the two countries was a "partnership of equals".
