Abstract

Towns along the Malaysia-Thailand border has always been associated with backwardness and low-income regions.This is mainly because policy development in the border regions is based more on defence and security over economic considerations.Economic structures and cross-border trade town of Sg. Kolok and Rantau Panjang are examined with the objective to measure the cross-border economic activity and its impact on the local population, particularly in employment opportunities and poverty eradication.Both towns are a shopping haven among local and foreign tourists and have the potential to become leading cross-border tourism of Malaysia-Thailand border.The Eastern Corridor Economic Region development plan implemented by the Malaysian government and the Southern Border Provinces Special Zone by the Thailand government can sustain cross-border economic development in the future.Security assurance in Southern Thailand will intensify the economic activities in the town of Rantau Panjang and Sg. Kolok.This has spill over effect in the border area by creating economic opportunities,employment and income in both area.
