State President Dr Lazarus Chakwera on Wednesday had an audience with Acting High Representative for the Least Developed Countries, Landlocked developing countries and Small Island developing States Her Excellency Ms Heidi Schroderus – Fox.
The meeting took place in New York United States of America ahead of the Fifth UN Least Developed Countries (LDC) conference.
In her remarks Fox said she is impressed with the commitment that Malawi’s leadership has displayed during the negotiations of the new programme of action.
She said the implementation of action will bring true change to people’s lives and livelihoods in the Least Developed Countries.
She added that a country that shows willingness to graduate from being ranked as least developed will do so with the assistance of the new programme of action.
“Every country wants to move forward and this is what we are fighting for and as leaders we are working to bring all different partners to the table, to implement the new program of action that includes private sector all international financial organisations developing partners and all UN funds programmes agencies as well as women and youths,” she said.
The President will later hold a meeting with UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres at the UN building headquarters.
