Abu-Ghazaleh Initiative for the Establishment of Arab Alliance for Service Industry

HE Dr. Talal Abu-Ghazaleh launched an important initiative for the creation of Arab Alliance on Service Industry (AASI) in the Global Service Forum held in concurrence with the 18th UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) in Doha (April 20th, 2012).

The proposed alliance comprises 22 countries whose populations combined amount to around half a billion. It will cover all service industries in the member states with concentration on services in a knowledge-based society.

The existence of such an alliance in the Arab world has a good rationale following similar examples around the world that proved to be feasible in the service sector.

AASI will operate in partnership and cooperation with specialized global entities, particularly UNCTAD and the WTO.
