The Greater Malayan Confederation,[1] or Maphilindo (for Malaya, the Philippines, and Indonesia), was a proposed nonpolitical confederation of those countries.

The original plan for a united state based on the concept of the Malay race was attempted by Wenceslao Vinzons during the Commonwealth government in the Philippines. There he espoused a United Malay race his Malaya Irredenta ideal (Malaya Irredenta was another name for Maphilindo). Also, Eduardo L. Martelino- of the famed Jabidah- in his book entitled "Someday, Malaysia" that was published in 1959, also cited the vision of then Philippine President Manuel L. Quezon for an integrated Malay-race nationhood in the region.

In July 1963, President Diosdado Macapagal of the Philippines convened a summit meeting in Manila. Maphilindo was proposed as a realization of Jose Rizal's dream of bringing together the Malay peoples, seen as artificially divided by colonial frontiers.

Maphilindo was described as a regional association that would approach issues of common concern in the spirit of consensus. However, it was also perceived as a tactic on the parts of Jakarta and Manila to delay, or even prevent, the formation of the Federation of Malaysia. Manila had its own claim to Sabah (formerly British North Borneo),[citation needed] and Jakarta protested the formation of Malaysia as a British imperialist plot. The plan failed when Sukarno adopted his plan of konfrontasi with Malaysia. The Konfrontasi, or Confrontation basically aims at preventing Malaysia to attain independence. The idea was inspired onto President Sukarno by the Partai Komunis Indonesia (PKI), or literally the Indonesian Communist Party. The party convinced President Sukarno that the Formation of Malaysia is a form of neo-colonization and will later affect tranquility in Indonesia. The subsequent development of ASEAN almost certainly excludes any possibility of the project ever being revived,,,
