Call for new partnerships between Arab and Turkish businessmen
In a speech at the first Turkish-Arab Economic Summit held in Mersin, the Turkish Minister of Development called on Arab businessmen to come to Turkey, work with their Turkish counterparts and achieve mutual benefits for both sides.
He added that in Turkey they do not want to be producers and that Arab countries will only buy, but aspire to cooperate with Arab businessmen and establish commercial companies with them to produce together and win together.
We, according to the Turkish Minister of Development, are peoples living in a single geography, united by common values, and there is nothing that cannot be achieved if we unite and stand together.
He pointed out the participation of representatives from 17 countries at the summit, including Turkey, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Palestine, Yemen, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar, Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia and Egypt.
In his speech, he said that the Turkish economy has reached a world record with a growth rate of 11.1 percent in the third quarter of the last year 2017 and said that Turkey has achieved the highest rate of economic growth in the last six years, which create a suitable environment to invest in Turkey.
For her part, the President of the Association of Turkish-Arab businessmen said in a speech that cooperation between the countries of the Islamic world should not be limited to providing assistance only, but extends to joint work and mutual benefits.
