The Bilateral Division fosters Malawi bilateral interest with thirty-five (35) countries in the Americas region. It further coordinates Diaspora matters in the region. The Division manages affairs of the two Malawi missions in Washington DC and Brasilia. Aside from the 2 missions, the Division may gain a mission in Ottawa, Canada, if government implements a recommendation to re-open the mission which operated from 1978 to 2005 (Malawi retains a few properties in Ottawa).
