The vision of the Malawi Government is to move from an import-based economic model to a export-based model. Industry and Trade statistics are critical for monitoring progress towards this vision. PARIS21, in collaboration with the National Statistics Office of Malawi, organised workshops at the country’s regional level to heighten collaboration between the main stakeholders in the production of trade statistics. The meeting also allowed for a number of suggestions relating to the 2018-2022 Strategy for Industry and Trade Statistics. The Ministry of Industry and Trade; the Reserve Bank of Malawi; the Malawi Revenue Authority; the Malawi Investment and Trade Centre; Agents involved in clearing imports; and World Trade Organization (WTO) were in attendance.
