The 13th Turkish-Arab Economic Forum

  • Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group

Turkish-Arab trade and investment are poised to regain momentum following the recent political reset with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, UAE and Egypt. This should pave the way for a sustained recovery in flows and further solidify economic partnership at a critical geopolitical and economic juncture.

Policy makers in Turkey and the Arab countries are currently focusing efforts on maintaining fiscal discipline and monetary stability to mitigate the headwinds from the heightened global risks chiefly from the war in Ukraine and the rise of global inflation, while keeping emphasis on advancing new waves of reform to accelerate economic diversification and boost competitiveness.

The new wave of investment between Turkey and the Arab countries are expected to be wider in scope and should include more industries such as manufacturing, digital technology, defense, food security, energy, pharmaceuticals, tourism and real estate development.

Guided by a central theme “History, Growth,Future” The 13th Turkish-Arab Economic Forum is scheduled to take place on 6 October 2022 at the Mandarin Oriental Bosphorus in Istanbul to discuss the next phase of Turkish-Arab Economic partnership.

The 2022 Forum will bring together more than 500 high-level delegates including government leaders, senior executives in companies and financial institutions and experts from Turkey and the Arab countries.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • New pillars of Turkish-Arab Economic partnership.
  • How are Turkey and Arab countries navigating current global geopolitical and economic turbulence?
  • How economic transformation is shaping the economies of the GCC?
  • Growing trade through investing in supply chain and logistics.
  • The new frontiers of investment in Turkey.
  • Economic vision and investment opportunities in Saudi Arabia, UAE, Qatar and other Arab countries.
  • Potential cooperation in digital economy and defense.
  • Opportunities in Food security
