Indonesia-Malaysia-Thailand Growth Triangle (IMT-GT)

The Indonesia-Malaysia-Thailand Growth Triangle (IMT-GT) is a subregional cooperation initiative formed in 1993 by the governments of Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand to accelerate economic and social transformation in less developed provinces. Since its formation, IMT-GT has grown in geographic scope and activities to encompass more than 83 million people. It is now composed of 14 provinces in southern Thailand, 8 states of Peninsular Malaysia, and the 10 provinces of Sumatra in Indonesia.

IMT-GT is also growing in importance outside of its subregion. The ASEAN Secretariat (ASEC) has recognised IMT-GT as a building block for the ASEAN Community Vision 2525. In addition, ASEC declared that IMT-GT projects and initiatives complement the ASEAN Economic Community Blueprint by serving as a test-bed before the wider implementation of regional initiatives.

IMT-GT’s activities are therefore not only serving to bring about economic growth and improved living standards within it's subregional but are also helping to achieve wider regional integration.
