Feedback from participants were generally positive. They felt that the training was well-managed and speakers had good knowledge of their respective topics. For future MTCPs, MIMA will incorporate the whole spectrum of maritime industry management to include ports, shipping, logistics, shipbuilding, and ship repair as well as other emerging maritime-related concerns. As a Centre of Excellence (CoE) on maritime affairs, MIMA will continue to conduct MTCP training to share Malaysia’s expertise in maritime industries with other developing countries.
