There will not be a Duty Free Week in the 2022/23 financial year, which comes to an end on March 31, the Malawi Revenue Authority has disclosed.

Duty Free Week was one of the key promises made by the Tonse Alliance in the run-up to the June 23, 2020 Fresh Presidential Elections.

MRA Commissioner General John Bizwick has confirmed of the development in an interview with the press

According to Bizwick,the Duty Free Week was not spelt out by the Minister of Finance during the presentation of the 2022/23 national budget.

According to Bizwick, the Duty Free Week implemented in January last year was clearly spelt out in the 2021/22 national budget.

He said if the government wants a Duty Free Week in the next budget, then it has to be clearly stipulated in the budget statement to be presented in the coming weeks.
