Gulf eyes Turkey's market

Turkish Daily News - Middle Eastern investors will take a closer look at economic opportunities in Turkey, as prominent figures in the Gulf region's business world convene at the Ceylan Intercontinental Hotel in Istanbul. The third-annual Turkish-Arab Economic Forum, or TAF-08, carries additional value due to the fact it will also host the first Turkish-Arab Finance Summit. Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan invited his counterparts in the Arab World and neighboring countries to the summit to discuss the future of Turkish-Arab finance, investment relations and ways of improving coordination on major regional and international issues. Ministers and businessmen from non-Arab countries will also participate, including Turkmenistan, Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan.
