KEETMANSHOOP, 26 JUL (NAMPA) – Six Namibians were selected to participate in various training courses in Malaysia under the 2017 Malaysian Technical Cooperation Programme (MTCP).
The participants, who work in Government, last week met with the Malaysian High Commissioner to Namibia Hishamuddin Ibrahim before their departure to that country.
The High Commission said in a statement on Tuesday the training programme kicked off in July and will finish at the end of August.
Courses the Namibian delegates are to attend include Environmental and Pollution Management, Good Animal Husbandry Practices, Valuation of Special Properties and Anti-Corruption Management and Information Technology Audit.
The MTCP courses are fully funded by the Malaysian government as part of the country sharing its development experience and expertise with other developing countries.
The High Commission said since Namibia’s independence in 1990 until December last year, 118 Namibian officials participated in various courses under this programme.
Launched by the Malaysian government in 1980, the programme has been formulated on the belief that the development of a country depends on the quality of its human resources, the High Commission said.
