The Centre for Trade Policy and Development (CTPD) has raised concerns about the effectiveness of current measures and policies aimed at reducing poverty in the country. They argue that a review of these measures is necessary in order to address the ongoing issue of poverty more effectively.
According to Isaac Mwaipopo, the Executive Director of CTPD, the measures and policies implemented in the past decade have been ineffective in reducing poverty levels in the country. Despite these efforts, poverty rates have continued to rise.
The effectiveness of current measures and policies to reduce poverty is being questioned. Despite the focus on increasing foreign direct investments (FDIs) as a means to alleviate poverty, poverty levels have not significantly decreased. This calls for a reevaluation of development priorities and the need to explore alternative strategies.
The Executive Director of the CTPD suggests that in order to effectively reduce poverty levels in the country, it is necessary to implement new measures and policies that create opportunities for its citizens.
