“Cultural diversity has always been at the core of the European project. As well as unity in diversity is the motto of our Union, because Europe has never been just one but many. Through EUFF, we hope this could promote diversity in the core of international cultural relations as it is an important part of the EU’s role as a global actor. Diversity must not be feared, but embraced”, said H.E. Maria Castillo Fernandez, Ambassador and Head of the EU Delegation to Malaysia.
