He said that the Human capital development is one of the enablers of the Malawi Vision 2063.
Dzimbiri added and pointed out that the state-owned enterprises have the obligation to contribute to the country’s socio-economic development by ensuring effective performance within their mandate.
 Newly appointed board members were equipped with basic public sector tools and policies to guide them as they carry out their duties in their respective entities.
Dzimbiri also expressed his profound gratitude to the Head of State, His Excellency Dr. Lazarus Chakwera, for entrusting MSG Council to operationalize the noble task of the School.
He assured them that the workshop was the start of MSG’s long journey of impacting positively on the development of Malawi through tailor-made programs aimed at developing an effective public workforce.
Prof. Dzimbiri introduced and congratulated the newly appointed Director General for the Malawi School of Government, Madam Dr. Asiyati Chiweza, who is the overseer of MSG Kanengo and Mpemba campuses.
Secretary to Office of President and Cabinet, Colleen Zamba, who was the guest of honour told the newly appointed boards of state corporation that government expects high performance from statutory corporations and that they need to deliver the Malawi Vision 2063 development agenda.
Zamba said that government will not tolerate underperformance in some parastatals and other state-owned enterprises that were characterized by wastefulness and self-enriching.
“You have been appointed with the responsibility to put in place systems and controls that should safeguard public resources for the benefit of Malawians and you are also expected to ensure that ethics, integrity, and accountability prevail in your institutions to bring back public trust in the parastatals,” she said.

Among them were Electricity Supply Commission of Malawi, Malawi Energy Regulatory Authority, Admarc, UNIMA, MUST, Malawi School of Government, Southern, Central and Northern Water Boards, Malawi Broadcasting Corporation, Malawi College of Accountancy, Teachers Council of Malawi, Malawi National Examination Board, Road Fund Administration, and Malawi Housing Corporation.
