This is Australia now

Australia now is an initiative of the Australian Government celebrating partnership — past, present and future.

We are honoured that Malaysia will be our host this year.

Australia now is a celebration of diversity, cooperation and cultural exchange in Malaysia throughout 2020.

It’s all about building relationships for the future – so join us in celebrating and connecting our future innovators, leaders, thinkers and social change makers.

We look forward to seeing you there.

“Australia enjoys a vibrant partnership with Malaysia, a country with which we have shared values and interests. Australia now will showcase contemporary Australia as a creative and innovative partner, and strengthen our economic collaboration.”
