Chakwera determined to steer Malawi to middle income status 

Posted in

Delivering his endnote, President Lazarus McCarthy Chakwera has challenged leaders in the LDC bloc to work collectively towards lifting each other out of poverty.

He said: “Our path to responsible development in this new world involves working together, leaving no one behind” 

President Chakwera indicated that LDCs will tirelessly work hard to make sure that they graduate from the bloc. He said if all things were equal countries should not have found themselves in the LDC group but they willingly do so in order to find solutions together on how to uplift each other on their way to achieving middle-income status.

“The LDC is the only body of nations none of us want to belong to indefinitely. The LDC is the only body all of us are working to escape and graduate from,” said Chakwera.

The Malawi leader then exited the stage with a word of promise to continue helping the incoming leader of LDC to ensure that the Doha Programme of Action which is geared towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), becomes a reality.

Malawi gracefully exited the stage as the Chair of LDC having led this bloc of 46 countries for the past four years.
