Investment Division

The Malawi Growth and Development Strategy (MGDS) recognizes the Private sector as being a key to achieving and sustaining growth in the country. Within this department, the Ministry is implementing programmes and activities that are aimed at creating a conducive environment in which the private sector can perform efficiently without excessive interference. The Government also has the mandate to actively encourage the expansion and creation of business, which are currently hindered by market failure and imperfections. This in turn should lead to improved productivity and competitiveness, both in the domestic and international markets.
