Blogging from Turkey

4 June 2012

I arrived in Istanbul last night to cover the first-ever World Economic Forum on Middle East, North Africa and Eurasia.

The meeting comes as Turkey is emerging more and more as a regional powerhouse; as such, I’ve written a piece for the forum’s official blog saying why Turkey could be a role model for the region; this could be read here http://forumblog.org/2012/06/turkey-a-middle-east-role-model/

I’ve published an expanded version of the same post on The Huffington Post, this could be read here http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/faisal-abbas/turkey-the-empire-strikes-back_b_1567294.html

Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan is to inaugurate the event tomorrow.
