    --- Inter-Banking restrictions between Jordan, Lebanon, Syria and Turkey have been demolished by the 4 Central Banks.

    --- Common-Market between Jordan, Lebanon, Syria and Turkey which was signed on January 2011 in Istanbul is in its 4th year.
    It is 4 country common-market, where the combined GDP of the other 3 countries is 6 times smaller then Turkey`s GDP.
    Banking regulations are diminished, thereby easing financing of economical activities of Turkish companies in those countries, and the 4 Business Unions of all 4 countries have or are still implementing 75 projects to fully integrate the economies.
    Turkey will simply absorb them economically with a potential common currency.

    Arab economies face import onslaught
    ...closer trade ties have already begun causing economic disruptions in Syria and could threaten the other Arab partners as Turkey's industrial juggernaut gains freer access to their markets.

    2011 - 2020
    Uniting the North

    2020 - 2030
    Uniting North and South


    Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu
    "We have united the north (through our cooperation with Syria, Lebanon and Jordan),
    and we are going to launch cooperation with the Gulf countries [...]"
    Turkey to set up trade zone with Syria, Lebanon, Jordan - Hurriyet Daily News and Economic Review


    The Gulf Cooperation Council is uniting parallel with economic and monetary union.
    Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the Gulf - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    And all united under OIC - Organization of Islamic Conference, which is 57 member organization CEO`ed by Prof. Ihsanoglu from Turkey.
    But currently it works a bit ineffective on world stage. That will change once 57 members become united in 4-10 blocks and 57 voices are reduced to more powerful voice-blocks.

    STRATEGY MAKES A DIFFERENCE -- ONE BIG ONE!
    Research Institute for European and American Studies (RIEAS)

    The Commentary above discusses the pre-thought manual of Turkish Foreign Policy.
    It is written in book form and was published in the year 2000.

    The Economist

    The Davutoglu effect
    All change for foreign policy


    Love thy neighbour, says Davutoglu

    That Photo is a bit misleading, because it captures Mr. Davutoglu`s eyes wrong.
    In reality, he is looking East without looking back.

    The FP Top 100 Global Thinkers

    7. Ahmet Davutoglu
    for being the brains behind Turkey's global reawakening.
    "The world expects great things from Turkey," he wrote in an essay for Foreign Policy. Under his watch, Turkey has assumed an international role not matched since a sultan sat in Istanbul's Topkapi Palace.
