The Deputy for Coordination of International Economic Cooperation of the Coordinating Economic Affairs Ministry, Edi Prio Pambudi, assessed on Thursday (23/3) that the Indonesia-Malaysia-Thailand Growth Triangle (IMT-GT) cooperation should be strengthened to generate broader benefits for each country. Pambudi said that IMT-GT cooperation needs to consider risks and opportunities from global dynamics and megatrends to realize the IMT-GT Vision 2036. During the meeting, delegates from IMT-GT member countries discussed eight areas of cooperation, including agriculture, tourism, halal products, digital transformation, trade and investment, environment, connectivity, and human resource development, along with some discussions on the development of cooperation between academics and business actors. A series of priority agendas for 2023 includes the 15th IMT-GT Summit that will take place on the sidelines of the 42nd ASEAN Summit in May, the 30th anniversary of the IMT-GT, and the 2023–2025 IMT-GT Visit Year. Pambudi drew attention to several important issues to be considered in the future, such as boosting connectivity to facilitate the flow of goods, people, and capital; the adoption of digital technology (including for the development of MSMEs); accelerating the energy transition, and increasing the benefits of IMT-GT strategic commodities in trade. In particular, Pambudi also conveyed directions related to food security, sustainability of the agricultural sector, increasing various stakeholders' involvement in reopening tourist attractions, and digitizing sub-regions.
