The International Science, Technology and Innovation Centre for South-South Cooperation under the Auspices of UNESCO (ISTIC) was one of the successful outcome of the 2nd Summit of G77 + China in Doha 2005. UNESCO requested Malaysia to host ISTIC as a UNESCO Category 2 Centre. All operational and administrative expenditure of a UNESCO Category 2 Centre is borne by the host nation. Malaysia accepted as her contribution to sustainable development in sister G77 nations through South-South cooperation in STI. ISTIC was launched in Kuala Lumpur on 28 May 2008 under the UNESCO-Malaysia Agreement on ISTIC 2008-2015. The UNESCO-Malaysia Agreement on ISTIC was renewed in 2016, extending the life of ISTIC to 2021. In ISTIC first decade, ISTIC has established an international reputation as the most eminent and respected centre in South-South cooperation in UNESCO and in the UN System.
In 2018, all ISTIC activities and events will celebrate her first decade of achievements and strategize for the next decade.
The highlight of ISTIC 10th Anniversary Celebration 2018 will be in the week beginning 7 May in Kuala Lumpur.
