Since its formal launch in 1992, the Singapore Cooperation Programme (SPC) has reached out to more than 56,000 government officials from 169 countries. The SCP has rendered technical assistance by providing training and sharing Singapore's experiences and expertise to developing nations. The SCP has since received numerous recognitions and compliments from our participants.
"I returned to work today and there's so much that I want to share with my colleagues. It has been a great experience."
"It is refreshing when one can experience such efficiency and what was exchanged during the interaction with staff at ISS and the Singapore Government. The period Jan 13 - 31 2008 will always return extremely pleasant memories."
Ministry of Finance,
"I have benefited tremendously from the 3 month course and am now able to understand and converse in English more confidently due to exposure and the opportunities to speak and interact with other course participants from the various ASEAN countries. It was also an opportunity for us to get to know one another on a personal level our country and culture."
Nguyen Thi Hien
"I would like to thank all of you at the MFA and CSCI for your warm welcome and helpful support to us. It was a great opportunity to be able to undergo such a well-organised training course. I have acquired valuable knowledge, experience and have already started to apply them."

"All the learning I had will surely go a long way in our country, for I have decided to adopt insights gained to contribute to the improvement of our educational system, even in my own little way. Thank You SCP!"
Eugenia R. Gorgon,
"We have learnt so much during the symposium and return filled with ideas and concepts which we will consider seriously with view to implement. You have given us the opportunity not merely to listen but also to see and experience for ourselves the progress and advancements made in the administration of justice and the development of the rule of law across the justice sector in Singapore. It has been an impressive achievement and I congratulate you for the innovative but humane approach Singapore has taken in the administration of justice. You have provided us with much food for thought."
