MALAYSIAN CULTURAL THREAD

Culture of Malaysia
Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture Malaysia Official Portal - MoTAC
www.motac.gov.my/en/

Malaysia has a multi-ethnic, multicultural, and multilingual society. The original culture of the area stemmed from indigenous tribes that inhabited it, along with the Malays who later moved there. Substantial influence exists from Chinese and Indian culture, dating back to when foreign trade began. Other cultural influences include the Persian, Arabic, and British cultures. Due to the structure of the government, coupled with the social contract theory, there has been minimal cultural assimilation of ethnic minorities.

In 1971, the government created a "National Cultural Policy", defining Malaysian culture. It stated that Malaysian culture must be based on the culture of the indigenous peoples of Malaysia, that it may incorporate suitable elements from other cultures, and that Islam must play a part in it. It also promoted the Malay language above others. This government intervention into culture has caused resentment among non-Malays who feel their cultural freedom was lessened. Both Chinese and Indian associations have submitted memorandums to the government, accusing it of formulating an undemocratic culture policy.

Some cultural disputes exist between Malaysia and neighbouring countries, notably Indonesia. The two countries have a similar cultural heritage, sharing many traditions and items. However, disputes have arisen over things ranging from culinary dishes to Malaysia's national anthem. Strong feelings exist in Indonesia about protecting their national heritage. The Malaysian government and the Indonesian government have met to defuse some of the tensions resulting from the overlaps in culture. Feelings are not as strong in Malaysia, where most recognise that many cultural values are shared.

Cultural tourism earns country RM551 mil a year — Mohamaddin
Bernama July 01, 2019 22:00 pm +08

KUALA LUMPUR (July 1): The cultural tourism sector has generated an average revenue of RM551 million for the past three years, says Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture Datuk Mohamaddin Ketapi.

He said last year, more than 17 million visitors participated in the cultural tourism programmes and it is the number is expected to rise further this year.

"Practices and way of life, performing arts and handicraft products have their own attraction, which can be promoted as well as able to generate income for the country, and the increase in visitors seen annually is a testimony to the great achievement.

"In addition, efforts by the Department of Museums Malaysia in collaborating with foreign countries to produce exhibitions, including countries like Kazakhstan is a positive effort for the institution to continue to flourish and strengthen its international network, as well as increase the number of visitors to the country," he told reporters after opening the Alharamain International Exhibition themed ‘A Journey over Thousands of Years’ and a meet and greet session with industry players here today.

The Alharamain International Exhibition, which runs until July 21, is an exhibition featuring Islamic art collections from over 1,400 years ago.

In another development, Mohamaddin said the National Museum was selected to host the Asian National Museums Association (ANMA) Conference for the very first time from Oct 29 to Oct 31 this year.

"The conference will see participation from various Asian countries such as Thailand, Singapore and Kazakhstan, and will discuss the theme as well as highlight the functions of national museums. They will meet and come up with a resolution on the development of museums. I am confident that this intensive planning and continuous promotion will enhance the visibility of museums," he said.

Meanwhile, National Museums Department director-general Datuk Kamarul Baharin A Kasim said the seventh ANMA conference would also discuss the latest changes and museum developments focused on education and research systems, as well as building good ties among Asian countries.

"The ANMA conference is still new, and so far 19 out of 23 member countries have agreed to participate in this conference, and we expect the largest three countries in this field, namely China, Japan and Korea to participate in this ANMA," he explained. — Bernama
