Chakwera made the remarks when he opened the 5th United Nations Conference on LDC 5.

The Malawi leader urged poor nations to remain focused on pursuing responsive and responsible human development despite the odds against them within the global financial and economic systems.

He expressed hope that the Doha Programme of Action (2022–2031) would facilitate the realization of sustainable development for respective populations.

“I am also extremely encouraged by the assurance offered by the United Nations, through Secretary-General António Guterres, who in his remarks advocated for reformed global systems to make them inclusive and accommodating to everyone’s interests,” said Chakwera.
