High Commissioner Of Malawi Visits Billingsgate Market

On Tuesday 5 April, John Scott CC, as Chairman of the Markets Committee, was delighted to welcome the High Commissioner of Malawi on an official visit to Billingsgate Market.  While Malawi is a land-locked country, Lake Malawi has an estimated 1,000 species of fish and the fishing industry accounts for 4% of GDP and employs 300,000 people.  In terms of exports this is a largely untapped resource and the High Commissioner is keen to explore opportunities, including the sale of tropical fish for aquariums.
