Chakwera Hosts NPC Commissioners

Commissioners of the National Planning Commission (NPC) today had a meeting with His Excellency Dr. Lazarus McCarthy Chakwera, President of the Republic of Malawi, during which they discussed progress in the implementation of the Malawi 2063 First 10-Year Implementation Plan (MIP-1).

During the meeting, President Chakwera reaffirmed his government’s commitment to the implementation of the Malawi 2063 through the MIP-1 and called on all Malawians to join hands with the government in the realization of the vision.

“The vision cannot be realised if we don’t work together,” said Chakwera.

On his part, NPC Chairperson Prof. Richard Mkandawire said there is need for accelerated implementation of the MIP-1 if its milestones of graduating Malawi into a middle-income economy and meeting most of the Sustainable Development Goals were to be met.

He said this can be done through, among other things, implementation of the Development State Philosophy as outlined in the MW2063 which calls for catalytic investment by the government in some productive ventures of the economy.

The NPC has since proposed the setting up of a MIP-1 Acceleration Fund to speed up implementation of the plan.
