Description of the Subject (Higher Education, e-learning): 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 the economic transformation in the less developed provinces of the region of the IMT-Growth Triangle.

  1. The mission of the Growth Triangle is to increase the international trade between the members and Foreign direct investment (FDI) opportunities
  2. The private sector of the region of the Indonesia-Malaysia-Thailand Growth Triangle has played a core function in promoting the economic cooperation
  3. 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
  4. 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:

  1. 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
  2. Eight states of Peninsular Malaysia (Kedah, Kelantan, Melaka, Negeri Sembilan, Penang, Perak, Perlis, and Selangor)
  3. 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 the IMT-GT since 2006. The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Secretariat is a valuable ally of the Growth Triangle that provides assistance and linkage to development-.

The Roadmap of the Indonesia-Malaysia-Thailand Growth Triangle (IMT-GT) identifies four economic connectivity corridors as key to increase the international trade, foreign direct investment, and tourism through strengthening the regional connectivity.
