Chakwera to wealth countries: Fulfill your pledges to LCDs

Chakwera: Chairperson for the LCDs

Malawi president Lazarus McCarthy Chakwera has called upon developed countries to ensure that they fulfill or deliver their promises to Least Developed Countries (LDCs), stating that their assistance should not be deemed or rendered as a favour but rather a historical and moral responsibility.

Chakwera said this in his capacity as LDCs’ Chairperson at the opening of the summit at the Doha Convention Centre in Qatar. The Malawi leader described the 5th Least Development Countries (LDCs) Summit as extremely unique, stressing that the 46-member grouping exists for the sole purpose of “ending own existence.”

Chakwera said the suffering that is shared by the poor countries under the LDCs banner requires them to embrace the Doha Programme of Action (2022-2031) which he described as an excellent and pragmatic blueprint designed to help LDCs escape such a category of poor countries.
