Welcome to Malaysia
The Hon. Dato’ Sri Mohd Najib Bin Tun Haji Abdul Razak
Prime Minister of Malaysia
It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the Malaysian portal of the Commonwealth of Nations website.
Malaysia, located in Southeast Asia, has been an active member of the Commonwealth since 1957. The Commonwealth serves as a useful platform for exchanging information, ideas and experiences and promotes better understanding amongst its member states.
Like the Commonwealth itself, Malaysia is a family of diverse cultures, multiple ethnic groups and faiths. Unity and harmony amongst our diverse communities has helped make Malaysia one of the most vibrant and dynamic countries in Asia. It is also a politically stable nation with a wealth of opportunities.
To build on these strengths, a national initiative called 1Malaysia was recently introduced. It calls on all Malaysians to achieve unity through diversity and work together to become a high-income economy and achieve developed nation status by 2020.
I invite you to explore this website to discover the charms, beauty and rich diversity of Malaysia.
