The United States commends the bold actions taken by Malawi’s President Joyce Banda since her inauguration last month. In her State of the Nation address, President Banda articulated a positive vision for Malawi’s future. Fulfilling this vision would put Malawi on sounder financial footing, invest more in the potential of its people, and better protect the human rights of its citizens. As Malawi’s largest donor, the United States remains committed to working with President Banda and all Malawians to achieve these goals.
