In line with policy objectives set out in the Malawi Growth and Development Strategy 2006-11, bilateral cooperation between the EU and Malawi focuses on three priority areas:

  • general budget support to improve the country’s macro-economic situation and strengthen public finance management systems, as well as health and education policy reforms
  • agriculture and food security – for more reliable food supplies and  better nutrition and livelihoods for rural households and the most vulnerable groups 
  • regional interconnections focusing on road infrastructure to promote national development.

Other areas for support are: governance; regional integration; trade and investment; gender and HIV/AIDS; and institutional capacity building.

Trade relations - The EU is Malawi's largest world-trading partner for exports, and the second largest for imports. However Malawi still accounts for just 0.01% of total EU trade.
