China’s growing cooperation with BIMP-EAGA (Ngeow Chow Bing, East Asia Forum)

The somewhat awkwardly termed Brunei-Indonesia-Malaysia-Philippines East ASEAN Growth Area (BIMP-EAGA) is an ASEAN sub-regional area launched in 1994. The area — which covers Brunei and parts of Indonesia (Kalimantan, Sulawesi, Maluku and Papua), Malaysia (Sabah, Sarawak and Labuan) and the Philippines (Mindanao and Palawan) — is described as ‘geographically far from the national capitals, yet strategically close to each other’.
