NCIC Trains Local Artisans

Home 9 News 9 NCIC Trains Local Artisans

In a bid to improve the quality of civil works in the country, the National Construction Industry Council (NCIC) is training local artisans from various district councils in Malawi. Today’s training has drawn local artisans from Kasungu and Ntchisi. Held at Small and Medium Enterprises Development Institute (SMEDI) at Mponera in Dowa, the training has attracted more 200 hundred local artisans.

Speaking during the opening ceremony, Training and Research Director for NCIC, Mrs. Neema Kadaluka said NCIC is geared to ensure that the construction industry produces quality and sustainable infrastructure in line with Vision 2063. She said this is achievable if everyone in the construction value chain, including local artisans, has the requisite knowledge to operate in the industry.

Taking his turn, Director of Public Works for Kasungu District Council, Mr. Davie Chigwenembe applauded NCIC saying the intervention is timely as district councils mostly rely on local artisans in executing development works at the local level. He further noted that such training will not only ensure quality of works but also enhance inclusivity in development projects.

One of the local artisans Mr. Paul Nyirenda said the training is an eye opener and will go a long way in ensuring that they contribute to quality, reliable and sustainable construction projects in line  the guiding statutes of the construction industry.
