Pres. Chakwera Launches LIMS & MBRS Online Systems: Building Blocks for Malawi’s Prosperity


Malawi’s President, Lazarus Chakwera, launched two pivotal online systems, the Malawi Business Registration System (MBRS) and the Land Information Management System (LIMS), at the Bingu International Convention Centre (BICC) on Thursday.

Chakwera emphasized that Malawi’s vision of achieving economic self-sufficiency and inclusivity hinges on providing citizens with accessible platforms to engage in profitable ventures and secure land for habitation and productivity. The President described the joint launch of these two systems as a historic milestone towards realizing this goal.

Said Chakwera:

“Malawi Business Registration System will improve efficiency in registration of business entities and consolidation of data around profit-making ventures. It will also enhance the investment environment at a time we are building a vibrant private sector as the main engine of economic growth.

“The Land Information Management System on the other hand has come about as a core component of the Agriculture Commercialisation (AGCOM) project being implemented in all parts of the country. Its prime benefit is the improvement of equitable land ownership and administration by all Malawians.

Chakwera also expressed his concerns over continued compromise around government data systems as observed recently elsewhere.

“I will not entertain any sort of laxity by duty bearers assigned to safeguard these systems,” said Chakwera in reference to the mess at Immigration Department.

Back to the systems he launched, the President thanked World Bank for their technical and financial assistance to make sure that Malawi adopts these two significant systems as part of the enabling tools of a prosperous Malawi.
