Malawi Investment Promotion Agency (MIPA)

The Malawi Investment and Trade Centre (MITC), a merger of the Malawi Investment Promotion Agency (MIPA) and Malawi Export Promotion Council (MEPC), was created October 2012 and became operational in 2013. The organization is geared toward promoting production (investment promotion) and marketing (export promotion) of Malawi’s goods and services. This broad mandate is expected to complement the functions and resources (both human and financial resources) of the pre-existing institutions and therefore enhance efficiency in performance.

  • Marketing Malawi as an ideal investment location
  • Counselling of investors and exporters
  • Product and Market development
