Ignatius Agung Satyawan

Abstract


Indonesia and Malaysia have long borders on land and sea on the island of Kalimantan. Sarawak and Sabah on the Malaysian side are bordered by the provinces of West Kalimantan, East Kalimantan and North Kalimantan on the Indonesian side. Border cooperation has been started since 1967 which focused on security aspects and then developed including economic aspects in 1984. In 1995 a Malaysia-Indonesia Working Committee was formed on the Socio-economic Work Cluster or Sosek-Malindo Cooperation between East Kalimantan and Sabah. In 2013 when several districts in East Kalimantan Province were made into the new Province of North Kalimantan, the Sosek-Malindo Cooperation then included Sabah and the new province. This article analyzes the benefits of the Sosek-Malindo Cooperation from North Kalimantan Province point of view. This research is using descriptive qualitative method with collecting data through interviews and secondary data analysis. The conclusion shows that Sosek-Malindo Cooperation has not brought much benefit to the province of North Kalimantan regarding goods and other living necessities are still supplied from Malaysia.
