Postponement of the 31st Malawi International Trade Fair


The Malawi Confederation of Chambers of Commerce and Industry wishes to inform exhibitors, patrons and the general public that the 31st Malawi International Trade Fair (MITF) which was scheduled to be held from 20 - 30 June 2019 under the theme “Achieving Competitiveness through Integration into Regional Value Chains” has been postponed to 6 – 15 August, 2019. The venue and theme for the event remain the same.


Being an International Trade Fair, participation of international exhibitors is key at the MITF. Mobilization of participants, both foreign and domestic, commenced way back in January this year. We received positive feedback as evidenced in the confirmations from the following countries: Indonesia, Zimbabwe, Tanzania, Kenya, Zambia and China. However, participants from all these countries except Zimbabwe have withdrawn their participation, citing existence of political uncertainty and tension in the country as reasons for their withdrawal.


In view of these developments, we have taken the decision to postpone holding of this event to 6 -15 August this year by which time we hope the clouds will have cleared.


If you need further information, please contact the Chief Executive, Mr. Chancellor Kaferapanjira, on 0999 788 177, or on This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Ministry committed to reduce constraints to doing business

Director of Administration and Finance in the Ministry of Industry Trade and Tourism Dr Joseph Mkandawire last week opened the first ever SME Expo with an assurance that the ministry is committed to ensuring that businesses operate in an environment with minimal constraints to doing business.

He said one of the commitments is the finalization of the new Micro Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) Policy and plans to establish a credit facility.

In his remarks MCCCI President, Prince Kapondamgaga said, despite the SME sector been acknowledged worldwide as an economic powerbase that stimulates economic growth, in Malawi the sector has not been accorded the attention it requires hence the introduction of the SME Expo.

During the Expo, African Institute of Corporate Citizenship was awarded Best SME Promoter, while the Best Innovative SME went to Malasha Briquettes while Tehilah Bakery won Best Overall SME.
