President Peter Mutharika says he will take advantage of the 74th Session of the United Nations General Assembly (Unga) in the United States to share with delegates issues contained in the Malawi Growth and Development Strategy (MGDSIII).
The President, who left on Wednesday through Kamuzu International Airport in Lilongwe, said together with his delegation, they will engage in fruitful discussions to bring desirable results to the country.
He said Unga will also provide an opportunity to tap into the much-needed resource information to further move forward the development aspirations of the country.
Mutharika said government will put into action what they will gather from the sessions in line with MDGS III.
He said the MDGS III is in line with this year’s Unga session themed Galvanising Multilateral Efforts for Poverty Eradication, Quality Education, Climate Change Action and Inclusion.
“We will discuss climate change, employment, men, women and youths, among others. We have all this in the MDGS III. So, it is just an issue of making sure that all those things are implemented,” he said.
The President said he will ensure that during his five-year tenure, his government puts into practice what will be discussed and agreed at the session and ensure that poverty is eradicated and that women and the youths are empowered.
Unga74 Session opened on Tuesday, but the first day of the high-level general debate will be Tuesday, September 24 2019.
