The magnitude of the diaspora’s potential contribution to the national socio-eco-nomic development of Malawi tuned the Government of Malawi into the value of systematic engagement with diaspora groups. This realisation promoted the cre-ation of structured mechanisms to manage relationships with Malawians abroad, and tap into the skills and resources of migrants. For these purposes, the Govern-ment set up a Diaspora Affairs Unit (DAU) under the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in 2012, and addressed a request to MIEUX to provide the unit with capacity building on diaspora engagement issues as well as support in the development of its Dias-pora Engagement Policy as a pillar to guide future action in this area.
