Asia and Middle East Forum
The Asian continent is considered the largest in space, population, natural resources and the highest in population and economic growth world-wide. It is, as well, the nearest to the Middle East in terms of culture, religion, civilization exchange other than the common fate during the colonization era. This creates an opportunity as well as a challenge to explore the available and possible opportunities that may serve both sides; Asia and the Middle East.
Moreover, Turkey is one of the most important countries in the Middle East and the whole of Asia for its strong connection with civilization of the past and development of the present. Therefore, we believe that Istanbul with its deep rootedness, history, diversity, middle geography among the three continents as well as economic development is the most suitable starting point for this ambitious project.
