It is possible to start entrepreneurial activity in Malawi immediately after obtaining permission, that is, registering trademark. The trademark advantageously emphasizes products or services against the background of other similar proposals, which increases the demand. Another function of trademark is legal protection of your brand from counterfeiting and plagiarism.

Trademark in Malawi should be presented in graphic form, and the designer can use any elements starting from simple symbols and figures up to three-dimensional images. You can not use elements of the emblems of other organizations, and registration of logos and mottos of extremist or immoral character is prohibited.
