Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu said: Asia is becoming an emerging power center in the world.
Addressing Turkish ambassadors at a dinner hosted by Foreign Economic Relations Board of Turkey (DEIK) and Turkey Exporters Assembly (TIM) in capital Ankara, he said economic power was shifting from the West to the East.
“We see that the power of economy is heading from the West to the East and Asia has started to emerge as the center of power,” said Cavusoglu.
He also said that Turkish Foreign Ministry has launched a new initiative called “Asia Anew” that would aim to improve ties with Asian countries in different regions.
The initiative would include cooperation on education, defense industry, investments, trade, technology, culture and political dialogue.
