The British Council has opened a legal and management centre in Blantyre, Malawi's commercial capital. A council spokesman said: "In a country where one management text book can cost a month's salary for a middle-ranking civil servant, the centre aims to provide easy access to up-to-date British materials, in order to improve the quality of management by both government-employed lawyers, managers and trainers, and those privately employed." The centre provides books, periodicals and videos and it plans to expand this to include CD-Roms, access to the Internet and the BBC World Service Television by the end of the year.
