Malawi, a largely agricultural country enjoying the fruits of political stability under a multi-party democracy, offers good potential for investors wishing to diversify into new African markets.
In addition to its largely unexploited mineral deposits, Malawi has rich natural resources such as fisheries based on Lake Malawi, the third largest freshwater lake in the world, as well as a burgeoning tourist industry. There is a strong English-speaking labour force, modern telecommunications networks and a well maintained transportation infrastructure. Geographically, Malawi is strategically located for access to regional markets.
