MW2063 for Quality Population

Malawi needs a quality population that is educated, trained and highly productive to achieve the Malawi 2063 national vision, the National Planning Commission has said.

Speaking during the Malawi Day at the 9th African Population Conference hosted by Malawi Government in Lilongwe this week, NPC Director General Dr. Thomas Munthali said the country is focusing on developing it’s human resource through improved education, health and nutrition, among other things, to achieve high productive and economic growth levels required for achievement of the Malawi 2063.

He said improving the quality of the population also entails reducing the population growth rate to match it with economic growth levels in the country.

The conference was held under the theme ‘Road to 2030: Leveraging Africa’s Human Capital to Achieve Transformation in a World of Uncertainty’.

It was officially opened by Minister of Finance and Economic Affairs Hon. Simplex Chithyola-Banda and was attended by delegates from across the continent and beyond.
