The state president Lazarus McCarthy chakwera and the First lady madame Monica Chakwera have arrived in Dar es Salaam Tanzania ahead of the Africa Human Capital Heads of State Summit convened under the theme ‘Accelerating Africa’s Economic Growth: Boosting Youth Productivity by Improving Learning and Skill’
Writing on his Facebook page Chakwera said the summit has come at an appropriate time for Malawi considering the overlapping local and global challenges of the past few years that have constrained growth of human capital and further complicated the countrys recovery efforts.
“These challenges comprise the Covid-19 pandemic, the war in Eastern Europe, rising inflation, disrupted global supply chains and natural disasters induced by climate change.” Said Chakwera.
He further said the summit will help the country deepen engagement with other stakeholders and unlock sustainable investments towards the triad of Education, Health and Skills in line with Malawi’s aspirations in the Malawi Vision 2063 under Enabler #5, Human Capital Development.
