Relations between Malawi and Germany date back to the 1960s. Germany has assisted Malawi over the years by providing funding in various areas ranging from primary education, rural health facilities, family planning and HIV/AIDS prevention, micro, small, and medium scale enterprise promotion, animal health, horticulture, and consolidation of democracy. Since 2007 Germany has, in coordination with other donors, aligned its assistance with the Malawi Growth and Development Strategy in education, health, and democratic decentralization.
The main mission of the embassy is to represent Malawi in Germany, facilitate economic activities relating to trade, investment and tourism, and to facilitate the mobilization of aid and technical cooperation from bilateral and multilateral partners.
