Malawi's exports are dominated by tobacco products, which account for over 50% of total exports. The SADC Trade Database workshop was held to evaluate other exported commodities, their growth rates, as well as the growth in their markets. However, given the limited access to Internet facilities (and the speed of such facilities), participants commended the availibility of an offline, CD-based browser. Workshop focus areas were access to the database, as well as the reliability and accuracy of trade data. Enthusiasm was also expressed about the availability of historical data beyond 1999.
