The center of commerce and finance in Malawi is located at Blantyre, the 2nd largest city here. While the political capital is Lilongwe, Blantyre is easily the thriving commercial capital. Besides this, it is the capital of the southern regions of the country and of District Blantyre as well. Within some years, there has been significant growth in traffic movement. This is the result of economic liberation and overall development of the country. An important change is that on roads public transport has given way to presence of minibusses and private cars.
There is a 9,601-mile stretch of road network in Malawi with almost half of these paved. So, driving your personal vehicle here seems like a practical thing to do. Whether paved or unpaved, the government here is trying its best to improve road conditions as much as possible. So, this is the best time to import your car from the US to Blantyre. You can drive not only across Blantyre and other cities in Malawi but to neighboring countries too with ease. This, in turn, will ensure higher savings in travel expenses.
