President Dr Lazarus Chakwera has urged the least developed countries to stay more focused on the Doha action to exit the least developed countries body where no nation desires to be.
The Malawi leader was speaking in Doha Qatar when he opened the six-day conference for the United Nations Least Developed Nations.
Dr Chakwera noted that the LDCs grouping is the only body of nations that all its members are working to escape and graduate from it.
He said this is the more reason the United Nations is working with these countries in pursuit of middle-income status.
And in his statement, the United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said countries with the least development need more support.
Guterres indicated that the United Nations is aware of the challenges created by the big economies that have slowed down development in most least-developed countries.
At the moment, each Head of State from the 46 least developed nations represented at the summit is presenting an overview of their country’s development status.
Chakwera is scheduled to hold talks with UN Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres and other world leaders.
The 5th UN Least Developed Countries Conference in Doha Qatar is being held under the theme, “From Potential to Prosperity.”
