Malaysia Day 2020 celebration

To commemorate the Malaysia Day celebration this year, the Embassy of Malaysia in Belgrade hosted a small and symbolic reception at the Oasis Garden of the Hilton Belgrade on 16 September 2020.

In view of the limitations imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic, the outdoor celebration was limited to a small circle of the Embassy’s partners and friends from various sectors: business, education, sports, local community leaders and media representatives.

Unlike its Independence Day, which signifies Malaysia’s liberation from the colonial power and is celebrated on 31 August annually, the Malaysia Day marks the formation of the country on 16 September 1963 that included the Malay Peninsula, North Borneo (Sabah), Sarawak and at that time Singapore (which left the Malaysian federation two years later), that led to what Malaysia is today; a peaceful and prosperous country.
