Territorial Diamonds

Malacca Straits Diagonal


The objective of the Malacca Straits Diagonal characterization is to define a territorial vision from a global and integrated perspective of the whole of this territory. This Diagonal vision Model can inspire the development of cooperation initiatives at local, regional, national and supranational levels.

The Malacca Straits Diagonal concept envisions a dynamic economic corridor connected with high-speed rail, motorways and digital links, assuring the functional integration of a traditionally fragmented region. The concept will connect cities, ports, and airports, adding further potential to extend toward the north until the metropolitan areas of southern Thailand.
