ISTANBUL - The Turkish magazine “ANBA” hosted, in an exclusive interview, HE Dr. Talal Abu-Ghazaleh, founder and chairman of Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Organization (TAG-Org), to discuss several aspects of his life, vision, professional and global experience and success story.

Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh said in the interview: “The Turkish people are our partners in religion, geography and conscious, in addition to the mutual interests between the two countries. It’s hard to find an economic partner to the Arab countries and particularly to Jordan who is closer than Turkey”.

Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh expressed his gratitude to Turkey for translating, publishing and distributing “Talal Ibn Adeebeh” story which narrates his life story through various stages, incorporating a message to “future leaders” to keep moving towards their dreams and ambitions regardless of all hardships.

Concerning future Jordanian-Turkish cooperation, Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh said: “We, at TAG-Org, always seek to provide and develop relations between the two parties by supporting commercial, real estate and investment businesses, as well as exchanging information and supporting gatherings of businessmen and companies by arranging field visit programs between Arab-Turk company delegations and businessmen.”

He also pointed out “We seek to form joint business boards to study joint business environments in our endeavor to build bridges that aim at grouping the most important Arab-Turkish corporations in one place as well as the array of legal and Intellectual Property consultations that have been established as the legal basis for commercial and investment businesses for the protection of  Arab-Turkish corporations and businessmen’s interests.”

Furthermore, Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh reiterated his constant quest to strengthen economic partnerships between Jordan and Turkey, highlighting and maximizing all available investment opportunities offered by the Jordanian economy and encouraging the private sector in Turkey to take part in major projects implemented in Jordan.

At the same time, Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh affirmed the need to protect Arab investors from phantom intermediary companies and protect Turkish-Arab partnership by solid legislative framework; calling for cooperation with banks to enhance joint investments and facilitate capital flows.

Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh also called for establishing an information and studies center for Turkish-Arab investment to be supported by an interactive website that helps investors get credible and accurate information. 

Meanwhile, Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh recalled the various challenges he faced and successfully surpassed, attributing his success to the harsh conditions and suffering he experienced as a refugee in the past. He also  affirmed his Organization's  absolute compliance with each country’s legislation by all staff at the Organization’s offices worldwide, attributing this as the reason for which TAG-Org hasn’t lost any court cases.

Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh concluded the interview by reaffirming his long-term and future plans in terms of projects and initiatives to develop and achieve additional development goals prior to profit-generating goals.
