President Ahmad Mohamed Ali of Islamic Development Bank said they were proud of Turkey's rapid development and economic initiatives, Anadolu Agency reported.
Turkey is one of the strongest members of the Bank, Ali told on Tuesday. Turkey, which undertook a strong role in the foundation of Islamic Development Bank since the very beginning, has the biggest share in the Bank, said Ali.
He noted that the Standing Committee for Economic & Commercial Cooperation of the Organization of the Islamic Cooperation (COMCEC) set up a new strategy in its last meeting which was chaired by Turkish President Abdullah Gul.
Ali added that they were very pleased with the new strategy.
"Turkey is acting very well. Turkey is rapidly growing while its nearby countries are having economic problems. This growth is very important for the interest of both Turkey and other Islamic countries. We are proud of Turkey's rapid development," said Ali.
