| A US Television crew has arrived in the country to record a 30-minute programme on the Malawi economy to be broadcast on Fox 5 New York Television.|
Programme Coordinator Eoin Rooney said the Malawi programme, to be introduced by President Bingu wa Mutharika, would form part of a series of broadcasts profiling African economies.
US Television produces country programmes broadcast on Fox 5 TV, a leading network for economic and financial news in the United States.
“This programme aims to strengthen Africa and Malawi’s key position within the Americas and beyond, highlighting the country’s most current tourism attractions and business investment opportunities,” said Rooney.
He said apart from the President, the programme plans to feature key ministers like Goodall Gondwe for Finance, Uladi Mussa for Agriculture and Martin Kansichi for Trade and Private Sector Development.
“We would like to communicate the success story that is Malawi’s economic recovery,” said Rooney.
He said the programme would also like to feature private sector businesses.
In Africa, the US Television crew has produced documentaries for Egypt, Rwanda, Uganda, Botswana and Tanzania.
The crew is coming from Zambia where it has completed gathering material for the African series, said Rooney.
