Goshen City, a multimillion dollar project in Monkey Bay, Mangochi, will hold its first multi-stakeholder meeting aimed at raising awareness and courting partnerships for the project.
The meeting will be held in Blantyre this Friday, a statement released on Tuesday by Goshen City founder Prophet Shepherd Bushiri said.
Bushiri, who is also the founder of the Enlightened Church Gathering (ECG)-The Jesus Nation, said the meeting aims at achieving several objectives, chief among them selling the vision of project to different sectors of the society, including the corporate world.
He said: “We want to explain to various stakeholders what Goshen City is all about, the business opportunities involved and also seek partnerships with other companies and institutions.”
Bushiri further added that the meeting also seeks to court more support from government and the private sector.
“Over 70 companies and institutions have been invited to participate in the meeting. The meeting will also be live on different television stations,” he said.
Goshen City is a smart, iconic and green city being built in Monkey Bay, Mangochi and will have a hub value proposition which will include agribusiness, finance, education, technology, tourism and medical.
The city project site is located about four kilometres from the Mangochi-Monkey Bay-Golomoti junction on the right handside of the road to Monkey Bay before the turn to Cape Maclear. It extends from the Mangochi-Monkey Bay Road to the beaches of Lake Malawi.
The first phase of Goshen City will cost $50 million and include residential housing units, a five-star hotel and a 5 000-seat international convention centre.
