Malaysia and other countries in the region have been successful with their development initiatives and are willing to share their success stories and lessons learned with other developing countries. CEDSCO has an excellent track record in bringing countries to Malaysia (and to other countries in the region) to learn from Malaysia’s development experiences. CEDSCO works in close collaboration with various donor agencies to ensure that study visits to Malaysia and the region are results-oriented and produce useful learning tools.

CEDSCO is a leading organiser, facilitator and manager of practical and purposeful study visits to Malaysia and other countries in the region. CEDSCO has been designing, organising and managing structured study visits on capacity-building programs for delegations from various countries visiting Malaysia since 2004 and these visits are planned carefully to ensure that study visits are focused and results-oriented.



Customised study visit programmes are carefully planned to be focused and results-oriented. Our programmes cover all aspects of public sector and where relevant, sight visits to neighboring provinces/states can be arranged.

Additionally, in-house workshops and trainings can be included to make the study visit a more wholesome experience. These workshops and trainings will be conducted by CEDSCO’s expert trainers who have vast public sector experience and background.

CEDSCO’s experienced professional Program Managers will assist visiting delegations with logistic support such as accommodation, airport transfers, local transportation, sight visits and cultural shows (during weekends).


Study Visits with CEDSCO consist of inputs by CEDSCO’s experienced trainers, visits to relevant ministries and agencies, interactions with key personnel in the ministries and agencies, discussions and meetings. By incorporating CEDSCO’s experts and Malaysian civil servants, delegates can expect a focused and results-based study visit.



CEDSCO’s study visit programme can vary between a few days to a few weeks depending on the requirements and needs of the delegation. Our Program Managers have vast experience in building a customized programme according to your requirements.
