MACRA Director General Mr. Daud Suleman has called upon local leaders to own the National Addressing System (NAS) which is being implemented in the country.
He was speaking in Chitipa during NAS awareness campaign to the distict Council where District Executive Committee (DEC) was briefed on the benefits of the project.
Mr. Suleman said the project will be successful only if local leaders work hand in hand with MACRA in implementing it.
MACRA is implementing NAS across the country in a phased approach after a successful pilot phase that was done in Blantyre.
NAS has led to the first ever postcodes for the country. The postcodes were developed and gazette in 2019.
