Chakwera Enganges ILO For Job Creation Strategies

By The Radar, LILONGWE

President Lazarus Chakwera says he has called for International Labour Organization-ILO’s sustained support to Malawi in the job creation strategies.

He also harmonization of social protection programmes within the post-Cyclone Freddy economic recovery.

Chakwera adds they have “strengthened the network the country has with the global community in implementing a roadmap that focuses on economic diversification, increased job opportunities and enhanced social protection.”

The Malawi leader is in New York, United States of America for the 78th United Nations General Assembly taking place under the theme: “Rebuilding Trust and Reigniting Global Solidarity: Accelerating Action on The 2030 Agenda and Its Sustainable Development Goals towards Peace, Prosperity, Progress and Sustainability for All.”

Some felt Chakwera’s trip was a wastage of the already depleted forex and hard-earned taxes. They argued Chakwera should have remained home and provide answers to the prevailing bad economy and high cost of living.

Yet, other commentators believed he needed to avail himself at such high level forums and engage people and institutions that matter to help mitigate the economy; currently worsened by the recent devastating and deadly Tropical Cyclone Freddy and staggering pubic debt of K7.9 trillion as it December 2022.
