Malawi has the potential to achieve a middle class economy and attain a self-reliance status if everyone joins hands to realize the country’s vision.
Minister of Trade Sosten Gwengwe, who represented the Vice President as guest of honor made these remarks on Tuesday at Bingu International Convention Centre (BICC) during the launch of the first ever strategic plan for the National Planning Commission (NPC).
“Our journey to achieve the middle –income status and become a self-reliant nation requires bundling our knowledge and skills together and dedicate ourselves so that we can finally be where we want.
NPC’s Director General Thomas Munthali said the strategic plan is the vehicle that will carry the vision and deliver to the expectation of Malawians as articulated in the document.
The NPC was established in 2017 by Act of Parliament, with a mission to guide and champion the development of effective policies by ensuring that they are mainstreamed and aligned to the overall medium –term and long term development plan.
