NPC Engages Journalists on MW2063 and MIP-1

The National Planning Commission (NPC) today hosted an engagement meeting with journalists at Eden Estates and Resorts at Airwing in Lilongwe where discussion centred on implementation, coordination, and tracking of progress of the Malawi 2063 and the Malawi 2063 First 10 Year Implementation Plan (MIP-1).

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID), through its Learn to Perform project being implemented through Banyan Global, supported the meeting technically and financially.

Journalists from various media houses in the central and northern regions of the country attended the meeting where they were also reminded of their role in the popularization and implementation of the national vision and its operationalisation plans.

NPC Director General Dr. Thomas Munthali urged journalists to persistently cover issues facing the country until something is done.

“The media should hold duty bearers, including us here at NPC, accountable,” said Dr. Munthali.

Chief of Party for Banyan Global, Dr. Francis Okello, said the media is key to effective implementation of the MW2063 and MIP-1 through their knowledgeable and passionate reporting of success stories and challenges facing implementation of development plans.

The meeting was aimed at enhancing journalists’ understanding of the vision, facilitating clearer message dissemination and promoting positive reporting to the public.
