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. The Malawi Government’s overarching medium term policy document, the Second Malawi Growth and Development Strategy (MGDS II 2011-2016) spells out Government’s Development agenda and how it is to be achieved through concerted efforts of various players in the economy.
