Message from Ambassador Holger Michael
Welcome to the website of the German Embassy Kuala Lumpur!
On our website, we would like to inform you about the tasks, activities and the services provided by the Embassy. You will also be able to find useful information and references about our host country and up-to-date news from Germany.
The political, economic and cultural relationship between Germany and Malaysia has been very close and friendly since the start of diplomatic relations in 1957. In 2017, we can thus celebrate 60 years of bilateral cooperation. Also important for Germany’s perception in Malaysia is the active and expanding presence of about 350 German companies.
Germany is the biggest trading partner of Malaysia in the EU and also one of the major foreign investor countries. On the other hand, Malaysia remains – amongst the ASEAN States – a major trading partner of Germany.
The steadily rising number of cooperation and exchange programmes between German and Malaysian universities proves the growing significance of the bilateral relations in the education sector. At present, there are about 900 Malaysian students studying in Germany. Frequent visits of German artists, musicians and movie crews lead to a lively cultural exchange with the Malaysian public.
Together with our friends and partners we will be able to further expand and strengthen the German-Malaysian relations.
We are always grateful for your suggestions and comments!
