Malaysian Technical Cooperation Programme (MTCP)

In line with the spirit of South-South cooperation, Malaysia has implemented the Malaysian Technical Cooperation Programme (MTCP) since 1980. This programme stands as proof of the commitment of the Government of Malaysia towards the promotion of technical cooperation among developing countries, offering support in areas where Malaysia has the experience and expertise.

The MTCP forms part of the strategy and commitment of the Malaysian Government to the promotion of technical cooperation among developing countries, strengthening of regional and sub-regional co-operation, and nurturing of a collective self-reliance among developing countries. The programme was formulated based on the belief that the development of a country depends on the quality of its human resources through training and provides a platform for the sharing of information and development experience.
