- In 2014 Malawi’s real GDP growth was estimated at 5.7%, mainly driven by agriculture.
- Monetary policy was tightened in 2014 with the aim of bringing down the persistently high inflation rate to a single digit by the end of 2015 but development partners continued to withhold general budgetary support, causing significant fiscal stress given the country’s heavy reliance on donor budget financing.
- The spatial dimensions of poverty in Malawi are reflected in rural-urban variations in the incidence of poverty and access to economic opportunities, underscoring the importance of policies with territorial focus.
