The Malaysian Technical Cooperation Programme (MTCP) was launched in 1980. The main objective lies under its philosophy that the human resource development is a vital catalyst for countries to achieve sustainable economic and social development. The Programme consolidates various forms of technical cooperation in areas where Malaysia has the valuable experience and expertise. Through these cooperation efforts, Malaysia’s bilateral ties with MTCP member countries were strengthened. The MTCP is implemented through several cooperation programmes such as training in both short and long-term courses, study visits and practical attachment.
The MTCP Scholarship for Postgraduate Studies provides opportunities for. students to pursue advanced academic study in Malaysia. This scholarship is a Government-to-Government basis, without any bond imposed by Malaysia. Scholarships are intended for promising candidates who may be expected to make a significant contribution to their own countries on their return from Malaysia.
