A New Vision of Turkish-Arab Economic Relations and Economic Cooperation in the 21st Century

A New Vision of Turkish-Arab Economic Relations and Economic Cooperation in the 21st Century

  • 14 November 2000

Arab and Turkish societies are undergoing a difficult transition, torn between modern and traditional forces and confronting economic challenges. Problems obstructing trade, banking and investment activity between Turkey and the Arab East were discussed to explore possible solutions.

Regional stability and prosperity depends much on Arab-Turkish relations especially because Turkey and Arab countries share a common history, culture and intellectual tradition.

Four principles govern Arab-Turkish relations: non-discrimination; reciprocal trade privileges; accessibility to markets; fair competition. Ambassador SPylemez emphasized the idea of establishing an unofficial body for intellectual and research institutions in the eastern Mediterranean and the Arab Gulf regions with the aim of providing a forum for discussion.
