As Minister for Economic Planning and Development which also oversees the National Statistical Office (NSO), Chilima addressed a special panel that  discussed the use of data and statistics for evidence based and inclusive implementation of development strategies.

The session also discussed how accurate data and statistics can be applied in sustainable recovery and building forward after the Covid-19 pandemic that has disrupted developmental gains in many African countries.

The country’s second-in-command addressed the session from his office at Capital Hill in Lilongwe the seat of government.

Chilima called on the participants to bring to the table insights that will among other things highlight the importance of application of accurate data for evidence-based implementation and reporting on strategic sectoral policies.

Data is everything. I hope we are making full use of the latest census report. We seem to talk about building hospitals, schools, etc without discussing demand (i.e. how many will need these things in future). 40 million people by 2045? How much of these “things” wll we need or can we afford? Perhaps we should be managing that “demand” aggressively. Food for thought.
