The launch is scheduled to take place at Bingu International Conference Center in Lilongwe, according to a statement made available to Nyasa Times.

The statement said the ‘Buy Malawi Strategy’ compliments government’s mission to promote industry, trade and private sector development for sustainable economic growth.

“The spirit behind the Buy Malawi Strategy is to encourage consumption of locally produced goods and services through deliberate interventions. Consequently, it is expected that such conduct will substantially enhance competitiveness of local firms through stimulation of local production and growth.

“This, it is envisaged, will be achieved by mobilizing the Malawian citizenry to embrace locally produced goods and services and building capacity in the competitiveness of enterprises by securing domestic demand for local firms’ outputs and promoting industrialization, a key priority in the Malawi Growth and Development Strategy (MGDS II),” reads the statement in part.

The Buy Malawi Strategy has benefitted from financial and technical assistance from the Government of Malawi, United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Private Sector.

Executive Director for Consumers Association of Malawi (Cama) John Kapito and Indigenous Business Association of Malawi (Ibam) chairperson, Mike Mlombwa, said Buy Malawian campaign, if successfully executed, would help Malawi minimise imports and in turn save foreign exchange.

    If only Malawians were proud to buy their own products. Simple things like milk we opt to buy foreign. Also let Malawian producers provide quality items that are attractive.
    If the idea is well sold it is brilliant. The country needs to move into manufacturing etc.

  7. idiots says:

    what a joke!!!!

  8. Pain-in-the-ass says:

    What do you actually manufacture to call “Malawian”? Fotsek, you are a useless President.

  9. therere says:

    this is not a simple assignment man, it can be done by a senior person like president or VP

  10. 2016 welcome says:

    Count how many strategy papers Malawi has launched against how many of those are operationalized. In fact it’s an oxymoron to hear about buy Malawi initiative when the manufacturing sector is fast shrinking due to unfavorable economic landscape. Priorities upside-down. Shame!

    Local industry died long time ago in Malawi due to this stupid policy called free market economy because 70% of our country is in the armpit of mocambique and illegal trade is in control. I still don’t understand why a poor country like Malawi adopted this stupid policy instead of protecting our small production base ? Malawi needs protectionism policy to develop like South Africa, Rwanda and Kenya.

  12. Nyembezi says:

    Mr President, this is the work of Minister of Trade and Industry. Go to parliament and answer questions. Focus on BIG issues.

  13. mugasa chairman says:

    or in other words, best buy malawian, initiated by mama c. tamanda kadzamira and chitukuko cha amayi m’malawi (ccam) ran from 1984-1994, ended when the great mcp lost the elections. tisamayiwale.
