MTCP Programme

The history of the MTCP Programme dates as far back as the First Commonwealth Heads of States (CHOGM) Meeting in Sydney in February 1978, where the idea was first conceived.

The Malaysian Technical Cooperation Programme (MTCP) was officially launched on 7 September, 1980 at the Commonwealth Heads of State Meeting in New Delhi, India, 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, the MTCP, which is a bilateral technical cooperation programme, shares development experiences with other developing countries.  This “prosper-thy-neighbour” philosophy is the underlying basis for the MTCP.  The Programme provides various forms of technical cooperation in areas where Malaysia has the experience and expertise.  The MTCP emphasises the development of human resources through the provision of training in various areas which are essential for a country’s development such as public administration, agriculture, poverty alleviation, investment promotion, ICT, banking, construction and English language. Since its launching, more than 20,000 participants from 138 countries have benefited from the various programmes offered under the MTCP.

The objectives of MTCP are :

  1. To share development experience with other countries;
  2. To strengthen bilateral relations between Malaysia and other developing countries;
  3. To promote South-South Cooperation; and
  4. To promote technical cooperation among developing countries.
