More about Malawi
- REMZFAMILY: Modern history of Malawi from World War I to today, covering all major events on politics, economy, society, and technology.
The resource-poor agricultural country of Malawi counts when measured by gross national income (GNI) of (2017) US- $ 320 per resident to the poorest countries in Africa. Despite macroeconomic progress through structural adjustment measures and average growth rates of over 2%, 51% of people live below the poverty line. The underdeveloped infrastructure, the high population growth, the poor level of education and the low purchasing power of the population are inhibiting the development of the inland state far from the sea. Corruption and high debt exacerbate the problems. With the support of the IMF and the World Bank, the government pursues a market economy-oriented economic policy, the main objective of which is the generation of foreign currency for the development of the infrastructure and a basic industry. The basis for this is export-oriented agriculture, the further promotion of which is also intended to prevent rural exodus. Efforts to liberalize, privatize, diversify and combat the high inflation rate (2016: 21.7%; 2017: 13.0%) will be continued. Despite debt relief (2017), foreign debts amount to US $ 2.18 billion.
Foreign trade: Malawi has had a negative trade balance for years (import value 2016: 1.89 billion US $, export value 1.57 billion US $). By far the most important export product is tobacco, followed by sugar, tea and nuts. The concentration on agricultural goods makes the economy dependent on world market prices and a favorable climate. The main imports are crude oil, industrial goods, motor vehicles and fuels as well as food. The main trading partners are the Republic of South Africa, China, Zimbabwe, Mozambique and India.
The agricultural sector, in which 64% of the workforce work, generates 28.3% of gross domestic product (GDP) and 81% of export earnings. Small farms with less than 2 hectares predominate; Maize, rice, millet, cassava and legumes are grown for personal use. The land is assigned to the subsistence farmers by local chiefs (»customary land«). One fifth of agricultural production is accounted for by large farms that specialize in the cultivation of tobacco, tea, cotton and sugar. Tobacco is largely grown on only 3% of the land (»freehold land«, mostly plantations). Livestock farming (cattle, pigs, sheep) is mainly practiced in the north. A high population growth and the agricultural focus on exports in particular have led to environmental problems such as soil erosion and karstification due to severe deforestation. Together with extreme climatic conditions (droughts, floods) and the reduction in the free distribution of fertilizers and seeds, this has led to food shortages in recent years. Although Malawi now exports maize abroad, a large part of the population can hardly meet their own needs with the food they produce.
Forestry: Since 1990 the forest stock has decreased by over a fifth. Currently around 34% of the country’s area is still designated as forest. The main purpose of logging is to obtain firewood (80%). The afforestation mainly focuses on valuable timber.
Fishing: Despite favorable conditions, fishing is only of regional importance and is mainly carried out in the southern bays of Lake Malawi, in Lake Chilwa and Lake Malombes, as well as in the Shire. However, the yields are heavily dependent on the climatically influenced water level.
Malawi has occurrences including of coal, precious stones (including rubies and sapphires), bauxite, gold, platinum metals, nickel, niobium, titanium ore and zirconium. The uranium ore deposits developed by an Australian company in 2008 have not been mined since the end of 2014 because they were unprofitable.
Industry is underdeveloped (share of GDP: 16.0%) and focuses on the food and beverage industry (sugar), the manufacture of consumer goods (including shoes, textiles) and the processing and refinement of agricultural products for export.
Tourism has potential and is seen as an important opportunity to diversify the country’s economy. The main tourist attractions are the Lake Malawi National Park (UNESCO World Heritage Site), the Kasungu National Park (2,300 km 2) in central Malawi and the Nyika National Park (3 200 km 2) in the north.

The transport network is concentrated in the south of the country. The main line of the 767 km long railway network runs from Nsanje in the extreme south via the two economic centers Blantyre and Lilongwe to Mchinji on the border with Zambia. Inland Malawi is connected to Beira (Mozambique) by this railway line and to Nacala (Mozambique) via a cross-link. Around 26% of the 15,500 km long road network is paved. There are good road connections from Lilongwe and Blantyre to Harare (Zimbabwe), Lusaka (Zambia) and Mbeya and Dar es Salaam (Tanzania). Inland shipping is important for the transport of people and goods. Lake Malawi serves as a waterway to Mozambique and Tanzania. The ports of Beira, Nacala and Dar es Salaam are used by Malawi as the main overseas ports.
