The Malaysian Technical Cooperation Programme (MTCP) was launched on 7 September 1980 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.
The programme forms part of the Malaysian Government’s commitment towards promoting technical cooperation among developing countries, strengthening of regional and sub-regional cooperation, as well as nurturing collective self-reliance among developing countries. The MTCP emphasises the development of human resources through the provision of training courses in various areas deemed essential for a country’s development.
Islamic Tourism Centre is constantly and continuously working with major industry players – including government officials and policy makers – to enhance Malaysia’s Islamic travel and tourism industry. The centre believes that the effective representation and management of tourism within governments can only be achieved through capacity building at institutional level. As part of its capacity-building initiatives, ITC collaborates with MTCP in providing training courses on an annual basis under the MTCP from the year 2009.
From 11 – 19 September 2017, ITC will once again coordinate a short course under MTCP, this time with the theme “Sstainable Tourism Management”. Participants will have the opportunity to attend lectures by distinguished figures from the Malaysian tourism industry.
