Manufacturing
Manufacturing accounts for about 12 percent of Malawi’s GDP. Since most of the traditional agricultural crops such as tobacco and tea are exported in a semi- processed state. There are huge opportunities for investors to convert most of these agricultural products into high value finished products. Specific opportunities lie in:

Textile and Garment Manufacturing
About 6 Chinese and Indian investors, currently dominate the garment industry. With market opportunities under AGOA and preferential bilateral agreements between Malawi and South Africa investing in the garment/textile industry would be smart choice for foreign investors.
Light Manufacturing
Malawi imports most of the required household electrical fittings (e.g. cables, plugs, switches) and engineering materials e.g. steel based products. Investors are therefore asked to invest in this sector to reduce current imports and save foreign exchange.
