During 2015 Grow Movement plans to build on the unique relationship that exists between Malawi and Scotland by increasing our presence within the business and volunteering community. Jeremy Roebuck, Scotland Country Manager attended the Scotland Malawi Partnership meeting in early January, held in the magnificent Nelson Mandela Room at Edinburgh’s City Chambers. In attendance were representatives from the Scottish government and a number of agencies with an interest in promoting Scotland’s historic links with Malawi. A number of interesting contacts were made including one potential Grow Movement volunteer with an expertise in promoting tourism. All delegates expressed sadness when updated on the latest news following the recent flooding. At the next meeting delegates will discuss the creation of links and systems to help businesses in Malawi export to Scotland with a specific focus on Coffee.
