SALAM SEJAHTERA. Happy Malaysia Day to All Fellow Malaysians.
They say: “East is East, and West is West, and never the two shall meet. But there is neither East nor West, Border nor Breed, nor Birth,” said Rudyard Kipling, the English poet, and novelist (1865-1936).
How true that is, and that is what defines Malaysia — one big family, born out of many races, religions, and ranks.
A potpourri of colors and sounds that make use beautiful and yet unique in the eyes of the world. Bound by the spirits and values of unity, tolerance, and respect for each other.
On September 16, 1963, Malaya rebranded to Malaysia – Brand Malaysia. When a new grand vision of becoming a progressive and successful nation that is to be seen, heard, known, and remembered by everyone in the world.
We planted the seed of growth and prosperity of the Brand. And as its roots spread, Brand Malaysia’s foundation grew deeper and stronger — scaling new horizons, pushing the envelope of growth, building on its prosperity and sustainability, stamping its leadership in the international arena.
Fifty-seven-years since the birth of Brand Malaysia, we are now an accomplished nation, one that all Malaysians should be proud of. And to me, there is only one reason why we celebrate Malaysia Day. That reason is that we are all united.
MALAYSIA DAY STANDS FOR MALAYSIA UNITED.
Unity is our strength. Unity gives us strength. Unity inspires strength. Unity in diversity is our strength. United we will stand no matter what, no matter where, and no matter how. We are united because we understand the power of unity.
We are an entity. We progress as one. We transform as one. We brand as one. We rise as one. We succeed as one.
YES, WE ARE ONE MALAYSIA!
And on this significant day of September 16, 2020, we once again renew our vision for Malaysia.
Branding Malaysia is the ultimate goal for Malaysia. Branding Malaysia to the world and for the World.
HAPPY MALAYSIA DAY TO ALL MY FELLOW MALAYSIANS!
the World President
of The World Brands Foundation
