Malaysian Technical Cooperation Program (MTCP)


The Malaysian Technical Cooperation Programme (MTCP) was initiated at the First Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) for Asia Pacific Region in Sydney in February 1978. It was officially launched on 7 September 1980 at the Commonwealth Heads of State Meeting in New Delhi to signify Malaysia’s commitment to South-South Cooperation, in particular Technical Cooperation among Developing Countries (TCDC). In line with the spirit of South-South Cooperation, Malaysia - through the MTCP - shares its development experiences and expertise with other developing countries. Based on the belief that the development of a country depends on the quality of its human resources, the MTCP focuses on human resource training in areas essential for a country’s development.

Since its inception, MTCP has trained more than 32,000 participants from 142 recipient countries. To date, MTCP has been extended to 143 developing nations for training within its ten (10) key areas.
