This project, the Mozambique Malawi Interconnector, comprises the construction of a 218 km long 400 kV transmission line between Matambo (Tete Province, Mozambique) and Phombeya (Balaka District, Malawi) by which the Malawi and the Mozambique electricity grids will be interconnected. The EU is contributing EUR 20 million from our African Investment Facility (AfIF), which will be managed by KfW (Germany) through a so called blending operation whereby EU grant funds are blended with loans from financial institutions.
It gives me great pleasure to be present on behalf of the European Union Delegation to Malawi to witness the opening of this training course in the framework of the ENACT Project for Police analysts and field investigators from the African continent.
First, allow me to briefly say a few words about
ENACT and transnational organized crime in Africa
The EU is proud to support ENACT: a project that spans the continent, dedicated to enhancing Africa’s response to transnational organized crime.
The European Union today launched three new projects that reaffirm its commitment to strengthening the rule of law and to making justice more accessible for all Zimbabweans. In total, the EU provides EUR 2.85 million (approx. USD 3.54 million) for the interventions.
