Malawi’s National Export Strategy (NES) is not just about exports in the most direct form. It is also about how Malawi can build the productive base of its economy. Therefore the development of Malawi’s productive base is central to Malawi’s development agenda as set out in the Malawi Growth and Development Strategy II. The component of the MGDS II that the National Export Strategy provides is a road map or how Malawi can build its productive base in a manner that will drive export growth on a sufficient scale to maintain the level of imports.

The NES is also central to accomplishing Malawi’s desired move into the export of high value goods and services and to reducing Malawi’s reliance on the export of raw or semi-raw commodities.
