MESSAGE FROM HIS EXCELLENCY ALLAN JOSEPH CHINTEDZA
It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to this official website of the Embassy of the Republic of Malawi to the People’s Republic of China. If you are here because you would like to quickly find important and relevant information about Malawi in order to formulate a working picture before deciding to visit or invest in the country, then you are at the right place. This website has been designed to quickly introduce you to the fundamentals of Malawi without any fluff, from the unique perspective of the Malawi Embassy in Beijing. You will find basic information about Malawi in following areas:
Trade and Investment;
Tourism and culture; and
Briefly, Malawi is a land-locked developing country in south-eastern Africa that has a number of unique opportunities. It is sub-tropical with warm weather and naturally green vegetation. The Malawi Government has liberalised its economy and foreign exchange rates, instituted business-friendly taxation regimes and introduced many investment incentives in order to attract quality foreign investment.
Already, Malawi has low production costs. Labour rates are very competitive. Additionally, the Malawian labour force is honest, dependable, hard-working, loyal, and easily trainable, thus operations of any investments in Malawi run smoothly and dependably. Furthermore, utilities such as power and water supply are available at very competitive rates. Besides, Malawi has several natural resources that are tourist attractions. These include Lake Malawi, game, natural scenery, activity-based and cultural tourism.
If you are considering expanding your options as an investor, Malawi has opportunities that you cannot afford to ignore. Many international business persons are making decent profits through opening factories to manufacture export goods; building roads and highways, bridges, and low-cost housing; and through engaging in commercial agriculture. If on the other hand you would like to have a truly African experience as a tourist, Malawi has the authentic African package for you. Foreign tourists enjoy the beaches of Malawi’s unique lake, our delicious fish, our green mountains, or learning to dance Malawi’s exotic dances to enrich their experience.
Information is power. It is my sincere hope that through this website you will find the necessary information to enable you to make enlightened decisions about investing or touring Malawi. Should you require further details on any subject, please feel free to get in touch with the Embassy for in-depth discussions. I invite you to visit and invest in Malawi, the Warm Heart of Africa.
