Malawi government controls exports of certain products.
As part of Malawi's export control system, the Malawi government has imposed some export restrictions.
With a view to enhancing and promoting exports as outlined in the National Export Strategy (NES), the list of products requiring export permit was reduced from 25 to 10 items. This measure was undertaken to make it cheaper, easier and faster to export and trade across the borders. Hence, only the following products listed hereunder require an export permit as stipulated under the Control of Goods Act (Cap 18.08) of the Laws of Malawi:
In addition to securing an export permit, exporters of the products outlined above should also ensure compliance with the necessary export procedures.
Any person found in breach of the above requirements will be liable to prosecution under the Law.
