Tanzania-Malawi Trade and Investment Forum

Following a Joint Permanent Commission for Cooperation (JPCC) between the Governments of the the Republic of Malawi and the United Republic of Tanzania which was held in Lilongwe, Malawi, from 3rd to 5th February, 2017, one of the agreed actions was that Malawi and Tanzania should be patronizing each other's trade and investment fairs and forums, and should hold joint trade and investment forums as a way of promoting trade, investment and information sharing between the two countries.   This deliberate resolution is meant to enhance formal business and social relationships between Malawi and Tanzania and to cultivate the trade and investment potential that is there between the two countries.

With a view to this, Tanzania will be hosting the first trade and investment Forum which will be held at the Royal Tughimbe Conference Center in Mbeya City on 26th and 27th July, 2018, under the theme "Strengthening Bilateral Trade and Investment Relations."  The Forum will entail a business symposium, a one-on-one networking environment between Malawian and Tanzanian business persons and an area to exhibit tradable goods by both Malawian and Tanzanian producers and traders.  The sectors of focus are as follows:

  • Trade & Industry
  • Tourism
  • Agriculture
  • Fisheries
  • Transportation
  • Mining
  • Finance & Banking
  • Education
  • Health
  • Information and Communication Technology (ICT)
Alongside, Governments of Malawi and Tanzania will be discussing broad and sector-focused policy and administrative issues in order to enable Doing Business between the two countries.  
It is anticipated that the Forum will be patronized by about 500 private sector participants from both countries.  At the end of the Forum, it is anticipated that deals will be signed by private sector entrepreneurs and companies, and Memoranda of Understanding between some Malawian and Tanzanian Government sectors pertaining to business enhancing frameworks.

The private sector in Malawi is invited to patronize this Forum.  Should you be interested to participate, please download and complete the registration form below and email to the address provided:
