An Induction for Foreign Diplomats in Malaysia: Malaysia's Culture and Identity

 

The Centre for Languages and Cultural Diplomacy recently completed the “Induction for Foreign Diplomats in Malaysia: Malaysia's Culture and Identity”. This is the third series since its first instalment on 1st June 2022. The programme aimed to provide newly arrived diplomats with a comprehensive understanding of the diplomatic processes and lifestyle, as well as the culture in Malaysia. The two-day programme was held from 8 to 9 March 2023 and was attended by fifteen diplomats representing various foreign embassies and international organisation.


The programme began with a welcoming remark by Mr R Suresh Kumar, Director of CLCD and featured talks by practitioners from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, BERNAMA TV, and a cultural expert. Throughout the course, the participants managed to gain a glimpse of the peculiarities of Malaysian culture, the workings of the Foreign Ministry, Malaysian Politics, honorifics in Malaysia, the nation’s media landscape as well as Working in Malaysia. One of the sessions included a visit to Wisma BERNAMA where participants were given a tour of the premises.


At the end of the programme, the participants expressed great satisfaction about how much they have learnt about the intricacies of Malaysian life – forming a strong foundation for their diplomatic tenure in Malaysia.
On 9 March 2023, Dato’ Dr Shazelina Zainul Abidin, Director General of IDFR, presented the certificates of attendance to the participants.
