This paper begins by describing border tourism within a 9A abstraction framework, with a focus on the drivers and barriers to growth with particular attention to knowledge gaps in the above nine development factors. This leads to a discussion on research possibilities and their implications on joint cross-border institutional initiatives.The next section then identifies potential areas for academic collaboration with an emphasis on high potential doable areas for immediate attention such as a joint publication of edited volume on cross-border tourism, joint research project on tourism development in the Malaysian-Thai border region, and formal/informal student or colleageal exchange programs.The final section concludes with an expression of hope and an earnest call for concerted efforts to encourage border tourism research as an important part of the IMT-GT policy and planning for tourism.
