Malawi 2063 - Our New National Vision

An inclusively wealthy and self-reliant nation

The Malawi 2063 (MW2063) aims to transform Malawi into a wealthy and self-reliant industrialized  uppermiddle-income country’ by the year 2063. Already, projections indicate that if the economy grows at an annual average rate of six percent, Malawi will attain the low middle-income status by 2030. As a matter of fact, if the country is more innovative and productive, both the low and upper middle-income statuses will be reached much earlier.

This Vision has been developed through an inclusive and participatory multi-stakeholder consultative process involving Malawians of different backgrounds from all corners of the country and in the diaspora. The MW2063 outlines collective aspirations and goals of our people towards the year 2063. It is anchored on the three pillars of Agricultural Productivity and Commercialization; Industrialization; and Urbanization. It articulates the enablers of Mindset Change, Effective Governance Systems, Enhanced Public Sector Performance, Private Sector Dynamism, Human Capital Development and Environmental Sustainability that will propel the country towards achieving economic independence, inclusive wealth creation, self-reliance and a high quality of life for all its citizens Read more..
