Find Transport expertise in Malawi
Road and rail links through neighbouring countries are of vital importance to Malawi, which depends on foreign ports for most of its imports and exports. A railway line runs some 700 km from the western border through Lilongwe to Blantyre and the Mozambique border in the south-east, and onward to the port of Nacala. The road network extends to some 28,000 km, 19% of which is paved. Road improvement is a government priority and the World Bank has been assisting in road upgrading in recent years. The main airports are Chileka International, Blantyre, and Lilongwe International, which provide services to regional hubs and beyond.
