Vice President Dr Saulos Klaus Chilima will from Monday embark on a second round of review meetings at councils and municipalities starting with Lilongwe.
In previous engagements with councils, Chilima, who is also responsible for the Public Sector Reforms portfolio, stressed the importance of councils focusing on reform areas with the maximum impact on financial sustainability and job creation.
Unlike previous engagements where Chilima held boardroom meetings with councils, on Monday, the Vice President will begin with visits to projects which Lilongwe City and Lilongwe District included in their reform areas.
The Vice President will visit the Kauma road construction before visiting Nsaru Cooperative and Mpingu Youth Association.
With about 700 youths, Mpingu Youth Association is fulfilling the agricultural commercialisation reform as it has acquired 4.6 hectors where the construction of a warehouse factory is taking place which will be used for value addition of agricultural products which they are producing.
Chilima has so far steered councils towards reforms that would ensure job creation through agricultural value addition, tourism and mining.
Similar reform review meetings will be conducted in the Central region districts of Dowa, Ntchisi, Dedza, Kasungu, Salima and Nkhotakota before moving to the South and North.
In an interview, Public Relations Officer for the Public Sector Reforms Department McCarthy Mwalwimba confirmed of these engagements lined up this week.
