Ambassador Edward Yakobe Sawerengera

It is a great pleasure for me to welcome you to the website of the Embassy of the Republic of Malawi in Washington DC.

The goal of the Embassy is to promote and strengthen the good relations between Malawi and the United States of America as well as the Bahamas, Canada, Mexico and Puerto Rico that are represented on non-residential basis.

The Embassy’s main focus is the promotion of development and the economic relations through effective transformational development assistance; the promotion of foreign direct investment; trade and tourism in line with the Malawi Growth and Development Strategy (MDGS) which also encompasses the United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

Another important duty for the Embassy is to provide information and the assistance to Malawians in the Diaspora and encourage them to actively participate in developing Malawi. In this regard, I would like to request all Malawians living in Canada, Mexico, Bahamas, Puerto Rico and US to register with the Embassy through this website.

On this web site, you will find a wealth of information about Malawi, its history, economy, trade, investment and tourism opportunities.

It also provides details of the services the Embassy offers which include consular and the promotion of Malawi Trade, Investment, Tourism, Economic Development and Culture.

Malawi is popularly known as the “Warm Heart of Africa” because of the warmth and friendliness of the people, its breathtaking natural beauty and the warm weather. For those visiting the “Warm Heart of Africa” for business or pleasure, the site provides information on visitor requirements. It also provides information on some major ecotourism attractions, the key one being Lake Malawi.

Malawi, an agricultural country, is one of the growing economies in the Southern African region, as was reflected in the growth rate of 8.5%. It is a budding attractive destination for investment, particularly in Agro-processing, Tourism development Infrastructure development and its budding mining industry. The web site provides information on Malawi Trade and Investment opportunities.

Malawi is a stable, peaceful country and a flourishing democracy which observes good governance, the rule of law and prudent fiscal and economic management.
