Malawi Communications Regulatory Authority (MACRA) and Malawi Revenue Authority (MRA) have signed information sharing and joint operations Memorandum of Understanding (MoU).

Director General of MACRA, Godfrey Itaye said the MoU will help the Authority to inspect all electronic equipment entering the country to ensure they meet acceptable standards.

Itaye therefore called upon all traders to get their products approved before importation and use in this country to ensure safety and prevent flooding of fake products.

Commissioner General of MRA, Tom Gray Malata said “the Authority’s linking with MACRA would imply that their systems and teams would work together to counter smuggling, tax invasion as well as money laundering to protect the country.”
