Lilongwe – President Lazarus Chakwera last week launched the Malawi National Planning Commission’s Vision 2063, with a rallying call for unity of purpose for the success of the development plan.

Dubbed “MW2063, Inclusive Malawi”, President Chakwera said the plan required all citizens to put shoulders to the wheel for socio-economic transformation.

“We spend our time on issues that can take us nowhere in this modern world, hence we need to start doing things in a different way,” he said.

Vice-President Saulos Chilima - who is also the Minister of Economic Planning and Development - called on all political parties to support MW2063 for the sake of national development.

VP Chilima said the vision was centered on inclusive wealth creation and economic independence.

“We want to be economically independent … hence I am asking youths to actively participate in various developmental programmes since they will be the main beneficiaries,” the vice-president said.

The chairperson of the National Planning Commission, Professor Richard Mkandawire, called on Malawians to work collectively to transform the country into an upper-middle income economy; and Mr David Claude, representing the African Union, hailed the government for coming up with the long-term development plan.
