Scotland Malawi Business Group

The SMBG was launched by the First Minister and the Malawian Foreign Minister in Edinburgh on 6 November 2006 and is in the process of being registered as a Scottish charity. The Group’s goal is to stimulate enterprise in Malawi and to help develop sustainable businesses, primarily by fostering links between the Scottish and Malawian business communities. Its first initiative will be to roll-out a microfinance project in the Southern Region of Malawi .

The SMBG Board is expected to comprise three or four prominent Scottish entrepreneurs and senior representatives of CBI Scotland, the Scottish Council for Development and Industry (SCDI) and Scottish Business in the Community.

Day to day management will be exercised by a small Management Committee, the initial members of which will be Bill Hughes, former Chair of The Prince’s Scottish Youth Business Trust and CBI Scotland, and Billy McAneney and George Finlayson from Malawi Tomorrow.
