Malaysian Technology Development Corporation (MTDC) has commenced the “MTCP-MTDC Commercialisation Ecosystem & Entrepreneurship Development Workshop”, an international training program for policymakers.
The workshop is scheduled from 22 to 26 July 2019, officiated by Dr. Zainul Fadziruddin Zainuddin, Director of the CEO Office.
“The main objective is to share our development experiences with other developing countries so that we could impart whatever knowledge and know-how we may have to other countries in order to assist them with their own development efforts,” said Dr. Zainul during his welcoming speech.
“Malaysia, through MTCP, remains committed to South-South Cooperation which is an important element of international cooperation for development that offers viable opportunities for developing countries in their individual and collective pursuit of sustained economic growth and to raise their level of development,” he further added.
The workshop not only promotes new business opportunities through bilateral market access for companies within the MTDC ecosystem, but also potential collaborations with the participating countries.
MTDC has introduced topics related to promotional aspects of technology commercialisation, research in universities to support technology development and commercialisation, entrepreneurship and SME development, government support for technology development, as well as facilities development in supporting new technology and commercialisation activities in Malaysia.
MTDC has been appointed as Training Institute under the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Malaysia as the programme organiser since 2012 and has conducted 13 programmes since then. The programme has benefited almost 500 participants from 29 countries.
