35 session de la Conférence générale

the Honourable Dato' Sri Mohd Najib Haji Tun Razak, Prime Minister of Malaysia

“I wish [Madam lrina Bokova] well and have every confidence that she would continue the good works of her predecessors. (...)I would also take this opportunity to congratulate the outgoing Director-General Mr Koïchiro Matsuura for his excellent stewardship.”
“The path forward lies in a more imaginative and inclusive form of globalization.”
“Basically, there are three major challenges that currently confront the international community which need to be collectively met and overcome.”
“First, the challenge of ensuring a durable peace, a just and equitable peace, not just peace for our time, but peace for all times. A peace premised upon a covenant of the willing and not one of enforced by way of hegemony through fear and coercion.”
“Malaysia is willing to play its role in facilitating intercultural dialogue. Geography and the legacy of history have positioned Malaysia strategically to act as a bridge in linking all of the worlds’ major cultures. (…) Truly, for Malaysians, inter cultural dialogue is an everyday fact of life.”
“The second challenge is in creating a new global financial architecture. The last fifty years have witnessed the ultimate and decisive triumph of market economy over central planning.”
“(…) In ensuring the desired results, the robust entrepreneurial spirit must be tempered with social conscience. It should also promote equitable growth and take on board the interests of all stakeholders.”
“The third, is that of managing climate change. It is a major challenge not for future generations but for us today. As I speak to you, my region is experiencing major natural disasters and catastrophes such as earthquake in Padang, Indonesia, Tsunami in Western Samoa, hurricanes in the Philippines and the major floods in Southern India. (…) These heart wrenching tragedies remind us all of how fragile the world we live in, and how interdependent our world has become. (…) UNESCO has been in the forefront to preserve historical sites as part of our global heritage.”
“I will be the first to admit the task that lies before us as policymakers and leaders in ensuring these challenges are met is not easy. (…) These are the challenges of our times. (…) They must be addressed head on by the world community with a concerted will and common purpose drawing upon our reservoir of goodwill and collective experience.”
“(…) I am happy to announce that the Government of Malaysia will establish a UNESCO - Malaysia Cooperative Trust Fund. This fund will be utilized to enhance South-South cooperation for capacity building in education and science for the benefit of the Least Developed Countries, Small Island States and in support of the Priority Africa agenda.”
“We are convinced that quality education can only be provided for by quality teachers. In Malaysia we believe in the principles of democratization of education which is equitable access to quality education and lifelong education, ideals much championed by UNESCO. Our nation’s programme is to emphasize early childhood education from zero to six years which is the most solid foundation we can give to any child. (…) Next year Malaysia will provide a launching grant of $5 million, followed by a contribution of $1 million annually. Programmes under this fund will be worked out in close consultation with the UNESCO Regional Offices in Bangkok and Jakarta, the priority Africa Department and the Malaysian National Commission for UNESCO in the Ministry of Education. Under this initiative Malaysia will provide teachers training facility at pre-service, in-service, school administration and management. Towards this end, about 300 places will be provided annually at all levels.”

35 session de la Conférence générale

H.E. Mr Mohd Puad Zarkashi, Deputy Minister of Education

(On behalf of the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Education of Malaysia).
“Any decline in funds, especially to basic education will threaten to reverse the progress made towards universal primary education. In fact, we must continue to invest in education to spiral out of this quagmire and to attain our EFA and MDG goals. Mindful of the Oslo Declaration in 2009, Malaysia has allocated 5.7% of its GDP or US $8.5 billion or 23% of our national operating budget to education.”
“Malaysia recognizes that literacy is the cornerstone of lifelong learning and that human capital development must begin with our children. As such, early childhood care and education should be part of the general education process to foster early learning and school readiness. This emphasis is consistent with UNESCO’s focus in the next biennium 2010-2011. (…) Our early childhood programme not only prepares children from age 0 to 4 for learning, but also provides an environment for children to freely mingle and communicate with each other from different ethnic, religious and cultural backgrounds. By 2012, 80% of our children will have access to preschool education.”
“The teacher training initiative under UNESCO Malaysia Cooperative Trust Fund announced by our Prime Minister two days ago reflects our firm commitment to enhancing the quality of teachers. In this regard, Malaysia would like to propose that UNESCO develop a set of standard delineating and standardizing the criteria and competencies necessary to produce teachers of high quality.”
“Technical and vocational subjects have now been incorporated in our Ministry of Education system for this particular purpose. We also plan to increase funds for technical and vocational education from 15% to 56% of our education budget.”
“Malaysia is committed to safeguarding our cultural heritage, both tangible and intangible, to share with the world and for our future generations. It is laudable that the World Heritage is becoming more representative, balanced and credible. Malaysia believes that the Arab region, the Far East and the Asia-Pacific have a large number of potential World Heritage sites which could be ratified to share with the world. We also would like to take this opportunity to thank UNESCO for the assistance rendered in the identification of two World Heritage sites and for the award of the UNESCO/Jikji Memory of World Prize to Malaysia as well.”

34 session de la Conférence générale

H.E. Hon. Dato Sri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein, Minister of Education

Malaysia congratulates Singapore and Montenegro for joining UNESCO.
Malaysia celebrates the 50th year of its independence in 2007 and together with UNESCO, dreams of a better world. The country fully appreciates UNESCO’s broader reform agenda.
“We are inspired by UNESCO’s mission and unequivocal commitment to the internationally agreed aims of peace and harmony amongst diverse peoples of the world. We embrace UNESCO’s mission of building peace, eradicating poverty, ensuring sustainable development and promoting intercultural dialogue.”
Malaysia has successfully increased the literacy rate to more than 90% and reduced the poverty rate from almost 50% in 1971 to 5.7% in 2005, reducing the hardcore poor from 6.9% to 1.9% with plans to eradicate poverty, hardcore poverty all together by the year 2010.
Education for All is still central for Malaysian conception of nation building: school fees were abolished up to secondary educational level. Schools are also a place where cultural and ethnic identities are treasured and protected. Communal conflicts and tensions are repressed in arguments about Malaysian schools. Knowledge is now becoming a larger and more important component of economic and political values in our globalized world.
“Today we have no choice but to revise the distinction we make between the global and the local, the domestic and the foreign, the local and the international and even in remote areas and in border areas, people are no longer citizens of only one country.”
“Malaysia’s greatest challenge at independence, our diversity, is now clearly one of our greatest assets. We are beginning to think of multiculturalism beyond just a compromise between race and religion, not just a contract to live and let live, but also an exciting invitation to work together and to create a unique society together.”
“UNESCO’s diversity is built on a peaceful and harmonious coexistence, not merely of individuals who happen to be different from one another but entire communities with distinct histories. UNESCO is an overlapping set of relationships between communities, which remain distinct and integral.”

Célébrations d'anniversaires

  • 500e anniversaire de la rencontre entre deux mondes (1492-1992) (pays d’Amérique latine et du groupe des Caraïbes, Chypre, France, Italie, Fédération de Russie, Allemagne, Mauritanie, Malaisie, Guinée, Sénégal, Espagne, avec les organismes coparrainants) (1992)

  • Comme il se trouve par ailleurs que le cinquième centenaire du point de
    départ de ce processus historique aux conséquences Ô combien considérables pour
    l’humanité se situe à l’intérieur de la période couverte par la Décennie mondiale
    du développement culturel, les activités le commémorant pourront s’inscrire dans
    le cadre de cette Décennie.
    Ce processus historique est né de la rencontre d’Européens et d’autochtones
    américains le 12 octobre 1492, date à laquelle Christophe Colomb débarque sur une
    petite île des Caraïbes. A partir de là, les rencontres et les contacts culturels
    entre les habitants des deux hémisphères du globe se développent sous diverses
    formes. Outre les Espagnols, les Portugais, les Anglais, les Français, les
    Néerlandais et des autochtones américains, les peuples d’Afrique, d’Asie et
    d’Océanie participent très vite à la confrontation des cultures. Au-delà des
    affrontements auxquels ce processus historique a donné lieu, il a permis à tous
    les peuples du monde de se découvrir mutuellement, et leur a révélé la Terre dans
    toute sa plénitude.
    Aujourd’hui, près de 500 ans après cette première prise de contact, les
    organisations internationales servent de cadre à un nouveau type de rencontre
    entre les peuples, rencontre désormais planétaire et oecuménique, qui revêt une
    dimension universelle et se caractérise par l’ouverture au dialogue. L’Unesco est
    aujourd’hui le lieu de rencontre culturelle de tous les peuples du monde.
