Australia now 2021 celebrates our links with Malaysia

The announcement of Malaysia as a host country for the Australia now program was made during a meeting between the Australian and Malaysian Foreign Ministers in November 2019.

In welcoming Malaysian Foreign Minister the Hon Dato’ Saifuddin Abdullah on his first visit to our shores as Foreign Minister, the Australian Minister for Foreign Affairs, Senator the Hon Marise Payne, said that she was very proud to announce Malaysia as the 2020-21 focus country for Australia’s flagship public diplomacy program.

A highlight of the visit was the signing of a bilateral film co-production agreement between our two countries to promote creative and commercial exchange between our screen industries.

The exciting new program will celebrate our bilateral partnership, showcase Australian creativity and innovation to Malaysian audiences, and coincide with Malaysia’s own Visit Malaysia 2021 tourism campaign.

Australia now Malaysia 2021 promises an impressive line-up of talent.
