In his remarks to business captains who attended the launch of the GETF on Wednesday April 26, 2023, in Lilongwe, UNDP Resident Representative Shigeki Komatsubara, said UNDP is looking at innovatively deepening the support for private sector led, inclusive market development and green business models “as a mean to contribute to poverty reduction through employment creation, income generation and overall economic development.”
