"BROTHERS Drinking From the Same Well"


Welcome to MTJA

Malaysia and Thailand have shared centuries of cultural, social and historical ties. With the spirit of friendship, mutual goodwill & cooperation, a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed in 1979 between the two Governments on the establishment of a Joint Authority for the exploration and exploitation of the resources of the seabed in a defined area of the overlapping claims of continental shelf of the two countries in the Gulf of Thailand for a period of 50 years. The establishment of the Malaysia-Thailand Joint Authority (MTJA) in 1990 marked yet another milestone to the existing bond of traditional friendship between the two neighbouring countries of ASEAN.
