Launch of Malawi Community of Practice

Malawi Government is currently embarking on reforms that will revitalize the way Government functions and delivers services to its citizens. Of importance also is the manner in which Government relates with various other players in the economy including the Civil Society, the private Sector, the general public as well as among the various Government owned institutions.
