Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand will launch a joint tourism package

The Indonesia-Malaysia-Thailand Growth Triangle (IMT-GT) yesterday declared an "IMT-GT Celebration Year" for the package.

It was inspired by the success of 2008's "Visit IMT-GT Year". The three countries will jointly promote tourism, said PM's Office Minister Virachai Virameteekul.

Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva discussed the plan with Indonesian President Susilo Yudhoyono and Malaysian Prime Minister Abdullah Badawi at an IMT-GT summit.

One idea is a joint promotion of medical tourism, Virachai told reporters, without detailing the plan.

Set up in 1993, the IMT-GT aims to strengthen sub-regional cooperation and economic growth.

It has a five-year road map covering infrastructure, halal food, trade and tourism running till 2011.

The IMT-GT scheme covers 10 Indonesian provinces, eight Malaysian states and 14 southern Thai provinces.
