Sub-Subject Description: Indonesia-Malaysia-Thailand Growth Triangle (IMT-GT):
The Indonesia - Malaysia - Thailand Growth Triangle (IMT-GT) is a
subregional Cooperation initiative created in 1993 by the governments of Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand with the objective to speeding up economic transformation in less developed provinces of the IMT-Growth Triangle region.
- The mission of the Growth Triangle is to increase international trade between members and foreign direct investment opportunities.
- The private sector of the Indonesia-Malaysia-Thailand Growth Triangle region has played a
core function in promoting economic cooperation.
- With the total market of 72 million and land area covering 602,293 square kilometres, the potential for economic growth and development for IMT-GT is immense.
- The Indonesia-Malaysia-Thailand Growth Triangle sub-region is characterised by many economic complementarities, geographical proximity, and close historical, cultural, and linguistic ties.
The Indonesia-Malaysia-Thailand Growth Triangle consists of:
- Fourteen provinces in Southern Thailand (Krabi, Nakhon Si Thammarat, Narathiwat, Pattani, Phattalung, Satun, Songkhla, Trang, Yala, Chumphon, Ranong, Surat Thani, Phang Nga, and Phuket) where the main religion is Buddhism.
- Eight states of Peninsular Malaysia (Kedah, Kelantan, Melaka, Negeri Sembilan, Penang, Perak, Perlis, and Selangor).
- Ten provinces in the island of Sumatra in Indonesia (Aceh, Bangka-Belitung, Bengkulu, Jambi, Lampung, North Sumatra, Riau, Riau Islands, South Sumatra, and West Sumatra).
In Indonesia and Malaysia, the main religion is Islam.
The Asian Development Bank is a Development Partner of IMT-GT since 2006.
The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Secretariat is a valuable ally of Growth Triangle that provides assistance and linkage to development in Regional
Cooperation in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).
The Indonesia-Malaysia-Thailand Growth Triangle (IMT-GT) Roadmap
identified four economic connectivity corridors as key to supporting augmented International Trade, foreign direct investment, and tourism through strengthening regional connectivity.
