MTCP ALUMNI APPRECIATION LUNCH
250822: HE High Commissioner, in his welcoming speech during the MTCP - Malaysian Technical Cooperation Programme Alumni Appreciation Lunch, emphasized both the value of Fijian participation in the MTCP and the strong track record of the MTCP in sharing Malaysia’s development experiences and expertise. The call for the strengthening of MTCP engagements was warmly welcomed by the alumni and received support from our guests serving in the Fiji Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The proof is in the pudding. The alumni around the table heaped praises on the quality of the courses, spoke glowingly about their experiences in Malaysia, and expressed appreciation for the impact of the offered courses. Passion is not an act and this was apparent when the alumni present during the lunch spoke with vigour as they regaled friends around the table with their experiences of participating in courses such as, but not limited to, IT Audit, Public Private Partnership, Flood Mitigation and Storm Water Management, Mixed Development Projects, Environment and Pollution Control, and Property Valuation. With the diverse group, which also includes friends from the Fiji Sun and The Fiji Times, the conversations exchanged and the overall atmosphere during the lunch was spirited, lively, and full of intrigue.
