By Leonard Masauli – Mana

President Dr Lazarus Chakwera has hailed the Global Leaders’ (GLS) Summit, currently underway at Bingu International Convention Centre (BICC) in Lilongwe, saying it is a milestone towards building capacity for transformative delivery of results for wealth, inclusive and self-reliant middle-income country.

He made the remarks Wednesday during the opening of the two-day summit.

Chakwera, who was glad that the Global Leaders Network is still in Malawi, said the summit will boost capacity in many areas that are most needed for delivery of results for the country.

“The results we are looking for is productivity that takes Malawi to becoming wealthy, inclusive and self-reliant and a middle-income country. I have no doubts that this years’ Global Summit will be a great cataract for building the leadership capacity of the office bearers across the country.

“I thank the leadership for the award and I will use it as a program and as a motivation. I am determined to make sure that despite challenges that Malawi face, I will take the country towards the achievement of food security, job creation and wealthy creation,” said Chakwera.

During the summit, Chairperson for Unashamed Ethical, Boshoff Grobler presented a Leadership Award to President Chakwera for fighting corruption.

Grobler urged the country leaders to devise ways that can provide a comprehensive solution in dealing with corruption in all sectors.

Global Leadership Network Country Team Leader, Victor Mughogho described the summit as important saying it will inspire and equip world class leadership that ignites transformation.

“As leaders we affect society by the way we lead and, therefore, we would like to bring leaders together and sharpen their skills and inspire them with knowledge and skills for enhanced leadership capacity.

“We believe that when you are inspired and equipped you are able to lead differently and keep up with the pace of change amid the evolving challenges. We are sure by the end of the summit leaders will lead their institutions and organisations differently,” said Mughogho.

The summit has brought together politicians, churches leaders, arts and society, government, academia and civil society, among others.
