About MTCP

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 the South-South Cooperation, in particular, the Technical Cooperation among Developing Countries (TCDC).

The MTCP emphasizes on the development of human resources through the provision of trainings in various areas which are essential for a country’s development such as the public administration, good governance, health, education, agriculture, sustainable development, poverty alleviation, economy and finance, ICT and environment. Annually, Malaysia offered more than 65 capacity-building and technical assistance programmes under the MTCP, which have benefited more than 34,000 participants from 144 countries.

UTHM Hosts the Virtual Malaysian Technical Cooperation Programme (MTCP) 2021


A training course on "Strategies for Sustainable Manufacturing and Operations" had been successfully organised by the Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia (UTHM). This online course was conducted from 12 July until 16 July 2021. The course was coordinated by the Continuing Education Centre (CEC) under the Malaysian Technical Cooperation Programme (MTCP) and funded by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Malaysia. Trainers for this course were Professor Dr. Erween Abd. Rahim and Dr. Nur Kamilah Yusof. Both trainers are from the Faculty of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering. This course adopted interactive online activities, online classes, group discussions, and presentation. Participants involved in this course were from Algeria, Brunei, Oman, Mauritius, Thailand and Turkmenistan.

Malaysia is one of the countries that emphasises on the bilateral relations to strengthen and empower the good relationship in stabilising the economy, politics and social in this region. In conjunction with that, this five days course is one of the ways taken by the Malaysian government to strengthen the relationship between the countries involved. Participants from this course had been the mediators as well as the small ambassadors for their countries to discuss and share experience related to sustainable manufacturing issues. The implementation of this course enables Malaysia to share expertise and experiences in the area of sustainable manufacturing and operations. It is envisaged that the intellectual discourse from this programme will result in future collaborations between governments, universities, research institutions and industry internationally.
