Next Global Economic Symposium to be in Turkey

This year's Global Economic Symposium (GES), held in Plön, Germany, has ended but next symposium is planned to take place in Istanbul.

Turkish Finance Minister Mehmet Simsek said next GES would likely to be organized in Turkey thanks to his efforts.

Simsek was the guest of honor at the two-day symposium.

When compared to Davos meetings, GES does not have a wider media coverage and it is less commercial but more inquisitive and researcher, Simsek said.

GES aims to provide a new collaborative setting to analyze the world's most important economic problems, create shared visions of the future and formulate innovative strategies to achieve these visions.

In particular, the GES seeks to initiate a strategic dialogue on global economic affairs for leading policy makers, business executives, academics and other representatives of civil communities. The GES provides a forum to think globally about global problems. The GES aims to build communities to come up with practical solutions that contribute to the global public interest. The symposium is held annually.
