Friends from media, all our distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen, good morning!
Today, we are here to attend the magnificent groundbreaking ceremony for a Grand Business Park in the beautiful city of Lilongwe. Before I go any further, please allow me, your Excellency, on behalf of all management and staff of our company to extend most welcome to you your Excellency Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika, President of the Republic of Malawi, and our heartfelt gratitude, for accepting our invitation to grace this auspicious occasion.
Your Excellency, we are aware that you have a very pressing schedule; your acceptance to attend this ground breaking ceremony is a clear testimony of your Government’s support towards foreign direct investment in Malawi. Your Government has created a very conducive environment for investors and established the Malawi Investment and Trade Center which is doing a commendable job to promote investment and help foreign investors to settle down. Your Excellency, your Government has also made sure that peace prevails in this country. We promise to repay you by ensuring that our company is a good corporate citizen in Malawi.
We have been in this beautiful country for two years now, we got much support from Malawi Government and many departments in every aspect,such as getting approval for this project , land procurement and so on.  Without your good leadership your Excellency, we could not achieve such progress. In a special way, let me recognize the contribution made towards this project by the following ministries and Government departments:
Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism for marketing Malawi during the Malawi Investment and Trade forum in June 2015 which convinced us to invest here in Malawi.
The Ministry has also been wonderful in listening to and finding solutions for our challenges and they have also taken a key role in organizing this event.
Malawi Investment and Trade Centre have done a wonderful job by helping us to obtain all necessary approvals in good time. Together with their line ministry, they have also taken a key role in organizing this function.
Ministry of Lands, Housing and Urban Development who did a wonderful job by finding suitable land for this investment. The department of Public events,and all other Government departments who have worked so hard to make this event a success. 
Please allow me to also extend my profound gratitude to His Excellency, Shiting Wang, Chinese Ambassador to the Republic of Malawi for gracing this auspicious occasion together with the Embassy Staff and their remarkable support for our project.
The geographical convenience means the relationship between China and Malawi is closer and closer; exchanges of leadership are more and more frequent. In 2015, our President XI Jinping and Premier LI Keqiang had a meeting with his Excellency Prof. Arthur Peter Mutharika President. In 2016, our Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Wang Yi, chose Malawi as his first trip for New Year’s visit and reached consensus for further development in terms of two country’s relationship.
Malawi is a country with stable political environment, friendly and kind people, charming sights, rich resource and bright future, and is called “warm heart of Africa” by the public; Malawi is also a land of great promises waiting for developing. Grand Business Park is expected to gather more people and industries here, create more jobs about 1500 direct jobs and about 2000 indirect jobs, bring various economic benefit to Malawian people and enhance vigor for Lilongwe, improve the city function, drive development of local economy. We just pray that Malawi government will provide the most favorable policies and continued enabling environment for us.
Like a Chinese saying goes, “when we plant a phoenix tree with one heart, the phoenix will perch of its own accord. The Grand Business Park is a modern industry park approved by both Chinese and Malawi Governments. The total area is 20.26 hectares and the whole investment is estimated to cost USD100 million. People dealing in commercial activities here will be able to find basically everything under one roof. Some of the trade will include building materials, decoration materials, furniture, cars and auto-parts sales, electrical appliances and banking facilities etc. Our company will construct it with high standards, push forward it with high efficiency and complete it with high quality. The park will be the largest and most comprehensive business park in south-east Africa, not only fill the gap of internal market in Malawi, but also generate great influence on consumer market of neighboring countries, such as Zambia, Mozambique, Tanzania.
Every brilliant achievement has a successful start and every start of success comes from a right choice. Today’s ceremony indicates the infrastructure will speed up, each program will enter into a stage of overall construction, and the activities of attracting investment will be carried out entirely. As the development and construction of this infrastructure is being carried out, this area will be a hot land full of potential. A large-scale business park built with full functions in terms of commercial needs. We are confident that a lot of entrepreneurs with unique vision will be attracted to do business here. We welcome friends and merchants from all over the world coming to the park.
Today, it is our great honor to have his Excellency President, Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika for coming here to open this ground breaking ceremony. We also thank the Ambassador Wang for gracing the occasion. We are moved and encouraged by their presence. We believe the coming of every one of you here indicate your recognition and support for our project. We will return this good gesture by ensuring outstanding performance. Be assured that the future of our business and our great plan has commenced today after the foundation stone is laid. Let us share the happiness brought by this ceremony and look forward to bright future together!
Lastly, allow me to wish the beautiful and harmonious Malawi; prosperity and everlasting peace! Happiness and blessing to the hardworking and kind Malawian people. I wish an everlasting friendship between China and Malawi..I wish your Excellency, Prof. Arthur Peter Mutharika, President of Republic of Malawi; the first lady ,vice president Chilima and your Excellency Ambassador Shiting Wang, every guest here present and every friend a happy and peaceful  life!
