He said in his capacity as Director General, he will concentrate on ensuring that data tariffs in Malawi reduce.

He said he will also ensure that MACRA becomes more efficient in its processes and investment in building capacity of staff.  

“I am not afraid to mention my three main KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) which I would want to achieve during my tenure of office. I want to see to it that data tariffs come down,” he said, adding:

“I will also make sure that there is efficiency and capability to make sure that processes are done in time. MACRA should be innovative,” he said.

Thirdly, he said, he will promote capacity building for all members of staff.

“As a regulator we cannot regulate what we don’t know,” he said.

Suleman further called upon members of staff  to work extra hard for the Authority to achieve its  goals.

He added that MACRA is key in the attainment of the Malawi 2063 agenda.

“We are laying foundations for a better Malawi which is possible with the digital space,” he said.
