Canada's Relations With Malaysia: Picking Partners in ASEAN
Preview not available

Abstract

Canada's relations with Malaysia, and more generally with the members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), have gone through three phases. These phases have been determined by the extent to which the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) has been able to coordinate the activities of the increasingly fragmented bureaucracy responsible for the international aspects of Canada's policies. From the late 1950s to the early 1970s Commonwealth ties meant that the PMO looked on Malaysia as Canada's main link with the region. During the 1970s, at the prompting of Prime Minister Trudeau and the PMO, Malaysia was replaced by Indonesia as the preferred partner. Since the early 1980s, however, the ASEAN region has not received the attention of the PMO and as a result there has emerged an ill-focussed set of bilateral relations with Malaysia and the other original members of ASEAN.
