Abstract: Not being put as a central agenda when dealing with various forms of significant capitals of a nation, structures (and processes) that carry people, actions, resources, and systems to run are very important. This paper reports the face and development of structural capital of Malawi as a rapidly developing country in Africa. The results showed that, CPIA business regulatory environment (i.e., Business competition environment), Business extent of disclosure (as it reflects Government efficiency), CPIA property rights & rule-based governance rating (Intellectual property right protection), Computers in use per capita, and Ease of doing business(i.e., Convenience of establishing new firms) remained at similar level and with less rapid growth. Positively, the number of firms using banks to finance investment (i.e., capital availability) and the Mobile phone subscribers are two factors that feature this economy’s structural/process capital strength. Theoretical and policy implications follow.
