- Malawi’s real GDP growth is estimated to have been 5% in 2013 and is projected to accelerate to 6.1% and 6.2% in 2014 and 2015 respectively, driven by tobacco exports and continued growth in the key sectors of agriculture, manufacturing and services.
- The main short-term challenge for the government is to consolidate macroeconomic stability and improve governance, while strengthening the enabling environment for private sector investment for sustained and inclusive growth.
- While the country is on track to achieving four of the eight Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), it faces serious challenges in meeting the MDG targets relating to universal primary education and to reducing gender inequality and maternal mortality.
