The Malawi University of Science and Technology (Must) on Saturday signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with China Agriculture University (CAU) to enhance technological advancement in the country’s agricultural sector.

Speaking during the signing ceremony at Must in Thyolo, CAU president Sun Qixin said China is committed to supporting Must to introduce faculties that will help improve skills, knowledge and techniques for increased productivity among farmers.

To achieve this, CAU has promised to work on capacity building and increasing human resource by offering Must lecturers scholarships to study in China and thereafter introduce new faculties at the university according to their expertise.

Said Sun: “We are pledging to support this university in providing necessary equipment and introduce exchange programmes for lecturers and students so that they interact and learn from each other.

“We are also suggesting that we set up a milk processing factory here at Must to help smallholder farmers in value addition.”

In her remarks, Must vice-chancellor Address Malata hailed the partnership, saying the university requires such partnerships to grow.

“We hope to benefit more knowing that CAU is one of the top universities in China and the world as a whole. Although they are an agriculture university, they are very comprehensive on issues of science and technology and we are so excited about this partnership,” she said.

Malata said the MoU will benefit both sides, especially through exchange programmes for lecturers and students from both universities.

Before the signing of the MoU, the Chinese delegates visited the nearby Goliati Milk Bulking Centre in Thyolo where they pledged to donate generators to ease challenges that farmers were facing due to frequent power blackouts.

Opened in 1905, CAU is one of the highly ranked universities in China.
