On behalf of the entire EU Delegation I warmly welcome you to the website of the European Union Delegation to the Republic of Malawi.

The website contains up-to-date information on trade and development cooperation between the EU and Malawi, focussing on our main activities and what we have achieved so far. The website is also a rich resource of information about EU-funded projects in Malawi, including case studies and photos; it looks at funding and studying opportunities in the EU Member States as well as being a source of information on EU Aid for Trade and Economic Partnership Agreements.

The EU and Malawi have enjoyed a long and enduring relationship, focussing on trade and development cooperation, dating back to the signing of the first Lomé Convention between the EU and the African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States in 1975.

Together with its Member States, the EU provides roughly €300 million annually in development assistance to Malawi, more than any other development partner.

Over the years, the EU has become Malawi's largest trading partner, accounting for about 25 percent of Malawi's exports and 13 percent of its imports.

With support from the EU and other donors, Malawi has made significant progress towards reaching the Millennium Development Goals, including the first goal: to eradicate extreme poverty and hunger.

I hope you will find this website informative and interesting and I invite you to contact us for any comments or questions you may have.

Ambassador Marchel Gerrmann

Head of the EU Delegation to Malawi
