Trade Policy Development > Indonesia

The Technical Cooperation Programme for Developing Countries (TCDC), based on South–South cooperation, is aimed at accelerating development and improving economic stability in developing countries. It also includes efforts to strengthen partnership among a number of countries. Carrying out activities in the framework of South–South cooperation creates an opportunity to share information and knowledge, and promotes a strong relationship and cooperation between Indonesia and other countries. The TCDC implies that developing countries also will assist each other in development and will strive to the level of economically developed countries, since there is a trend in developed countries to reduce aid to developing countries. By establishing partnerships among these countries, representatives of participating countries are given an opportunity to learn the culture and traditions of Indonesia.
