MTC Import Assistance Programme


Our Objectives

The Import Assistance Programme (IAP) established by the Malaysian Timber Council (MTC) is an off-shore sourcing programme for timber raw materials. This programme aims to encourage the development of small-and medium-enterprises (SMEs) of the timber industry in Peninsular Malaysia that are involved in manufacturing downstream value-added products for the domestic and export markets. The programme facilitates local timber manufacturers to import raw materials by defraying part of the freight and handling charges.
