MABBIM is a regional linguistic body made up of three countries, namely Brunei Darussalam, Indonesia and Malaysia. Originally, it was named the Indonesian-Malaysian Language Council (MBIM) upon its establishment on 29 December 1972 following a joint statement signed by the late Tun Hussein Onn, Minister of Education of Malaysia, and Mashuri Saleh SH, Minister of Education and Culture of the Republic of Indonesia, on 23 May 1972 in Jakarta. MBIM became MABBIM upon Brunei Darussalam’s joining on 4 November 1985. To date, Singapore remains an observer country of the council.
The mission of MABBIM’s linguistic collaboration is to build on and to develop the Malay/Indonesian language in the three MABBIM member countries as a language of high civilisation, language of knowledge, language of science, language of modern technologies, language of enterprise and language of economics.
