"This includes rail maintanenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) and COE, system intergration COE, aerospace and maritime industries.
"These industries will benefit from ICP converted into an ICP value of RM30bil to RM40bil of train-of-trainer programs, human capital development, localization and market access," he said in a statement today.
Zailani said since the training was more like a lesson learned session, Ghana should be able to save time and money by replicating the best Malaysia has done and learning from the risks and surprises TDA had gone through.
"The success of this ICP training has shown that Malaysia is the first country in the world to promote its ICP Management Framework and TDA is looking forward to working with other interested parties in the future," he said.
