Vice President Saulos Chilima has said the country needs to stop having short-term plans if it is to develop.
Chilima says the MDGS III will be reviewed to align with the Vision 2063 once launched.
He has urged development partners to respect the development plans that the country has and align their support to the local strategy.
He emphasized the need for the country to focus on long term projects that will make a meaningful impact on the lives of many Malawians.
He has advised National Planning Commission (NPC) to work closely with his Ministry to effectively implement the MGDS III by among others identifying key areas of priorities.
