Malaysians to emulate the indomitable spirit of the Koreans

Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak arrived on December 9, 2014, for a three-day official visit to South Korea to further strengthen the existing bilateral relations between Malaysia and South Korea, reports Grace Kim, Special to ASSIST News Service.

At a dinner event with Malaysians residing in South Korea, the Prime Minister said that he wanted Malaysians to emulate the indomitable spirit of the Koreans who through their survival instinct drove South Korea to be a hugely successful nation, reports Bernama News Agency.

Najib Razak said this instinct pushed them to become successful and coupled with efforts that were truly focused, made South Korea the economic powerhouse it is now.

The Prime Minister stressed that the government had continued with the second wave of the Look East policy, which has been the basis of a strong partnership between the two countries for more than 30 years, by sending students to South Korea, not only to gain knowledge but also to study Korean culture and their positive values towards further developing Malaysia.

“And I hope that is the spirit that will drive us forward because as a nation we want to transform Malaysia as well, we want Malaysia to become a fully developed nation, and there is no easy way. I mean today's world is very competitive, you have to be the best among the best,” he said.

On December 10th, South Korean President Park Geun-hye expressed the hope for Malaysia to play a role in the context of peace in the Korean Peninsula during a Malaysia-South Korea delegation meeting at the Cheong Wa Dae (Presidential Blue House).

According to the news agency, the South Korean president was impressed with the success of Malaysia as a multiracial and multi-religious nation that had established a peaceful environment and implemented moderate and progressive policies acceptable to all quarters.

As of the 2010 census, the population of Malaysia was 28,334,135 and the population of Malaysia consists of many ethnic groups. In 2010, Malaysian citizens made up 91.8% of the population.

Approximately 9.2% of the population practice Christianity.

Christianity is the predominant religion of the non-Malay bumiputera community (46.5%). Bumiputera is a Malaysian term to describe the Malay race and other indigenous peoples of Southeast Asia, and used particularly in Malaysia.

The official language of Malaysia is Malaysian, a standardized form of the Malay language. English remains an active second language, with its use allowed for some official purposes. Chinese Malaysians predominantly speak Chinese dialects from the southern provinces of China. Tamil is used predominantly by Tamils, who form a majority of Malaysian Indians.

The Prime Minister asked South Korea to remain as part of ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations), as a strategic partner in working towards a dynamic grouping for Asia and for the world.

Through Najib’s visit to Korea, the cultural exchange between the two countries will be getting a boost.

The head of state is the king, known as the Yang di-Pertuan Agong. The head of government of Malaysia is the Prime Minister.
