As part of its shift from direct implementation to facilitation of trade promotion services in targeted southern African countries, the TradeHub has formalized a partnership with the Malawi Confederation of Chambers of Commerce and Industries (MCCCI). The confederation signed a Trade Promotion Service Provider (TPSP) agreement with the TradeHub, which will allow the program to collaborate with MCCCI member enterprises and associations representing a broad swath of Malawi’s economy. Founded in 1892, MCCCI is Malawi’s largest and oldest business member organization. The organization has been at the forefront of the country’s export promotion efforts, servicing the business community by issuing certificates of origin, providing up-to-date economic data to aid businesses’ decision making, organizing trade promotion events, and providing small enterprises with office space. The TradeHub has worked with MCCCI to promote Malawian exports to South Africa and the United States. Last year, the TradeHub enlisted U.S. partner Registrar Corp to lead a seminar on U.S. market entry requirements, including those of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, for Malawian exporters.
