MAS contributes to the capacity building of regional central banks and regulatory authorities through structured training and technical cooperation programmes.

In July 2015, the Central Bank of Myanmar (CBM) and MAS entered into an MOU that includes technical cooperation and training. MAS hosted CBM Governor U Kyaw Kyaw Maung to a study visit in August 2015. In February 2016, MAS conducted a three-day workshop on interbank markets and banking supervision for over 30 CBM participants in Yangon.

MAS was invited to share its enterprise risk management practices at Bank Indonesia's Annual Risk Management Conference in Bali in September 2015 and with the Autoriti Monetari Brunei Darussalam in Brunei in January 2016.

In 2015, over 100 participants from 29 countries attended the 21st and 22nd MAS Banking Supervisors' Training Programme, the 6th MAS Information Technology Supervision Workshop and the 9th MAS-Toronto Centre Regional Leadership Programme for Securities Regulators. Close to 100 participants from countries such as Brunei, China, Korea, Myanmar and Vietnam took part in MAS' in-country training programmes and study visits.

In other technical cooperation programmes, MAS collaborated with partners such as the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, Civil Service College and South East Asian Central Banks (SEACEN) Research and Training Centre. For instance, in April 2015, MAS hosted the 10th SEACEN-BOJ Payments and Settlements System Course in Singapore. MAS also contributed resource speakers to various programmes organised by the SEACEN Centre, IMF-Singapore Regional Training Institute and Financial Stability Institute.
