By showcasing Ireland's rich cultural heritage, we can reap long-term and positive benefits for Ireland's reputation and its relationship with the people of Malaysia. We can also work to connect people with their Irish heritage.
Ireland's culture is a unique national strength. It's one of our greatest competitive advantages, acting as a "door opener" that converts into jobs, trade, investment and tourism around the world. It’s also one of our most effective ways of connecting with the Irish community.
We're involved in a range of cultural activities, which raise awareness of Ireland and also enhance our ties with Malaysia. We promote cultural relations through a number of initiatives:
The Embassy supports cultural initiatives through collaboration with other groups in theatre, poetry, dance and music.
Some 70 million people around the world claim Irish roots. If you are one of them, there are a number of ways you can celebrate your heritage and discover more about where you come from.
Over the years, generations of Irish people have made invaluable contributions to all aspects of life in their new homes, in politics, the arts, business and sport. Their patriotism coexists with the contribution they have made in their new communities.
