Since 2012, ECAMA has been organising annual conferences targeting high-level representatives from the private and public sector, civil society organisation and development partners. The annual conference aims at encouraging open, proactive debate and policy dialogue on pertinent economic issues in Malawi so as to inform policy formulation and influence the development agenda of the country. The annual conferences have attracted numerous high-level policymakers, including sitting Presidents of Joyce Banda and Peter Mutharika. There is no doubt as to the value of a high-level policy dialogue platform provided by the ECAMA annual conference as the conference communiques are highly regarded in policy circles.
