  • In a few years' time, the Belt and Road has evolved from China's initiative into a new mode of global collaboration, which connects countries in Europe, Asia and Africa over land and maritime routes. As an important country along the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road, Malaysia is a multi-ethnic society consisting of Malays, Chinese and Indians, etc. These different ethnic groups have been living together for hundreds of years with their own religions, languages and cultures, contributing to the country's unique cultural diversity. Geographical advantage, historical factors and cultural richness make Malaysia a pivot point on the Belt and Road. Dr Joseph S. P. Ting, the former Chief Curator of the Hong Kong Museum of History, will host a programme series including a talk and a historical/cultural exploration to Malaysia from which participants will be able to learn more about this interesting country.
