Malawi's economic growth seen at 7 percent in 2017
LILONGWE May 18 (Reuters) - Malawi's economic growth is forecast at 7 percent this year from 5.1 percent in 2016, helped by a recovery in the agriculture sector, Finance Minister Goodall Gondwe said on Thursday.
Gondwe told Reuters that good rains have led to an improvement in maize output, after a drought last year weighed on production. (Reporting by Mabvuto Banda Editing by Jeremy Gaunt; Writing by Olivia Kumwenda-Mtambo)
