PUTRAJAYA: The government has introduced 1Malaysia Training Centre (1MTC) to optimise the use of existing resources and training facilities.
It is also aimed at improving the delivery of government services, the Malaysian Administrative Modernisation and Management Planning Unit (Mampu) said.
The move was inspired by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak, under the National Blue Ocean Strategy, it said.
In a statement, Mampu said that the centre would indirectly help make strategic deci-sions related to the use of public training institutes.
The initiative is led by Mampu and the Economic Planning Unit with several strategic partners, such as the Finance Ministry, Prime Minister's Department and Public Service Departments.
Other partners include the defence, rural and regional development, human resources, and youth and sports ministries.
Also involved is the One Malaysia for Youth (1M4U) set-up.
The 1MTC will be launched by the prime minister in March.
The first phase of the initiative will be implemented under a pilot project at the National Institute of Public Administration (or Intan), Judicial and Legal Training Institute (or Ilkap), National Institute of Valuation (or Inspen), Malaysia Islamic Training Institute (or Ilim) and Centre for Instructor and Advanced Skill Training.
Phase two of the initiative is expected to cover more centres.
Mampu said further information was available at the 1MTC online portal at www.1mtc.gov.my.
