SCHOOL OF SCHOOLS - ASIA
“Asia Anew“

Today, when not only the degree of predictability decreases depending on the growing uncertainties, but also multilateralism and universal principles or values have increasingly been eroding, while global peace and stability are facing threats from ongoing crises or conflicts in various regions, including our neighboring territories, which have further aggravated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Current global governance mechanisms suffer from a total lack of effectiveness especially in dealing with increasing vulnerabilities and inequalities across the world, including our neighboring territories. This situation increases the momentum of the major political trends that have been observed in international relations, as well as the power struggles between different levels of peer or near-peer actors.

Notwithstanding the current tumultuous global economic environment, Turkey aims to restore favorable conditions for sustainable peace and development, both in its region and across the world, and contributes to maintain regional and therefore global prosperity and stability, while protecting its national interests. Turkey, which aims to increase its effectiveness not only through negotiations, but also by making its presence felt in the ground, together with or driven by an astute and vigorous diplomacy to face the latest threats and make better use of opportunities or to settle the crises in the current global environment, has adopted a “entrepreneurial and humanitarian“ foreign policy concept that reflects the entrepreneurial spirit of the nation and humanitarian values. Turkey's foreign policy, which is built on sound foundations such as its geostrategic location, dynamic economy, resilient institutions, demographic capacity and human capital, leverages a large number of complementary political, economic, cultural and humanitarian cooperation instruments as part of its entrepreneurial and humanitarian approach, and exercises a diplomatic insight that thinks globally and operates locally.

Turkey's Asia Anew Initiative, announced in 2019, seeks to forge closer ties with Asia as it was in the past, which reappeared as the world's economic center of gravity with its emerging global powers, is a reflection of its entrepreneurial foreign policy concept that also requires to be innovative. Turkey, with the Asia Anew Initiative and within a more coherent and comprehensive policy framework, by developing increasingly well-organized and more focused relations with the continent, will hold a position where it should be in the Asian Age. In this new global environment, international actors are broadly in competition to have a more effective position in the continent, as closer relations and more constructive cooperation with Asia are required to have effectiveness not only in terms of economic instruments, but also diplomatic tools in order to have a voice in the negotiations. Given its deep-seated historical and cultural roots in the world's most dynamic region, Turkey has been in an exceptionally favorable position.

Projects development activities, as part of the Asia Anew Initiative, have been carried out by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, under the auspices of the Turkish Presidency, in coordination with certain agencies or institutions, such as Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TİKA), Disaster and Emergency Management Presidency (AFAD), as well as relevant ministries.

Turkey, which aims to move its Asian policy into the future by upgrading its components and in a way that not only respecting the differences in Asia, but also considering the continent in its integrity, provides a new opening policy or a blueprint through its Asia Anew Initiative. It is aimed to create new synergies with all of the Asian countries through common values, mutual respect, equality, harmony and the principles of the UN Charter. Certain instruments, which are essential for embracing the continent as a whole, have been developed by the engagements of both public and private sectors, as well as cooperation efforts between universities and societies. These cooperation efforts or collaborations are expected to encompass a wide variety of perspectives in various sectors, including economy, civil society, health, tourism, technology, space, defense industry, education, culture and diplomacy. Collective capabilities or resources that will be mobilized in this context, especially the think-tanks, which have a critical role to play in terms of decision-making processes, will be decisive on Turkey's future role in this domain.

Turkey's Asia Anew Initiative does not aim a shift in the balance of power towards the eastward direction. On the contrary, it seeks to strengthen its geostrategic position, which bridges Asia and Europe, and contribute to sustainable development, as it can be seen in Turkey's efforts during its 2019-2020 term presidency of Asian Cooperation Dialogue, which operates as the most comprehensive regional cooperation organization of the continent. To identify and re-evaluate the opportunities that accompanied the achievements of Turkey, whose influence is growing on the world affairs during the last two decades in particular, and that of the Asian countries, which are rising in global politics and economy, with a win-win approach is also one of the goals of the initiative. Given these opportunities emerging from the recent developments in Asia, which is rapidly growing, as the world's demographic center of gravity, especially in terms of its cultural and economic diversity, Turkey has been making significant efforts to leverage cooperation potential with the region's countries, by developing further its relations with the continent of which Turkey itself is a natural member.

It is expected, during this process of refocusing on Asia started with the Asia Anew Initiative, that Turkey, which is the westernmost Asian, will close the gap with many countries from South Asia, to Southeast Asia, from Central Asia, to East Asia with which Turkey has deep historical and cultural ties of thousands of years. There is a huge potential, especially in energy, high tech, industry 4.0 domains, to cooperate with the region's dominant actors, such as China, Japan, South Korea, through a well-considered technical know-how transfer, while providing effective interactions to encourage civil diplomacy mechanisms both in the arenas of the economy and civil society, as well as joint efforts in collaboration with the continent's underdeveloped countries in infrastructure and development projects. Considering the different characteristics of Asian countries that distinguishes them from other regions and underpinned by their deep-seated traditions and cultural diversity, the Asia Anew Initiative will contribute significantly to increasing economic and commercial cooperation with Asia, while approaching the continent in its integrity. In particular, the possible instruments for reducing the unsustainable and "non-extendable" trade deficit in trade balances is of critical importance.

As part of Asia Anew Initiative, in order to make use of the opportunities and potential emerging with the rise of Asia, certain important steps were also taken in 2020. Certain mechanisms have been established in order for innovative policies to be chosen with effective coordination and to implement them effectively. A set of two-year Priority Action Plans were prepared for 40 main activity areas concerning 31 Asian countries. The Asia Anew Initiative, which have been supported beyond expectations by all relevant institutions and social segments, has not only provided considerable motivation for the works of the business circles, NGOs, think-tanks and academic communities in terms of content, but also given them fresh impetus. Additionally, as part of the Asia Anew initiative, more active and more dynamic participation is provided to international organizations whose effectiveness is gradually increasing on the continent, and complete action plans started to be implemented respectively by deepening the cooperation within the framework of the status of each organization.

The Asia Anew initiative, which was announced and institutionalized in 2019 as a foreign policy vision, could not be fully implemented in 2020 due to the Covid-19 outbreak, which have had deep impacts on all countries. The epidemic, which already turned into a pandemic, has not only deeply affected the economies across the world, but also led to significant changes in terms of international balance of power. It has also paved the way for China, which has long been considered as a "rival/rising power" against the "superpower" US, to emerge as one of the new dominant actors, which are expanding their dominance over the international economic order. China did still enjoy a positive level of growth rate at the end of 2020, when the world economies recorded significant shrinkage or recession due to the pandemic.

Turkey, with its Asia Anew initiative, as well as leveraging its strategic advantage, will take its place as a “balancing power“ between Asia and Europe, in an environment that is reshaping the global economic balance of the new international order, following economic recovery of countries from the pandemic, as negative effects started to decrease along with the current vaccination efforts. Leveraging its geostrategic position that plays a crucial role in international trade between the East and the West, Turkey will certainly use this distinct advantage in the most effective way. Turkey's first export train, which arrived in Xi'an on 19 December 2020 by crossing two continents, two seas and five countries, including Georgia, Azerbaijan, the Caspian Sea and Kazakhstan, and following considerable efforts for the infrastructure works of the Trans Caspian East-West Central Corridor, is also one of the important achievements of the Asia Anew Initiative of Turkey, which is one of the countries that have been carefully observing China's Belt Road Initiative since its announcement in 2013.

Turkey will position itself in the best way in the upcoming period while global economic and political power balances are reshaping in the post-Covid-19 era, through its efforts focusing on developing multidimensional strategic relationships with the "Rising Countries of the Rising Asia", which are potential partners of the Asia Anew Initiative.

Since 2004, the motto of "21st Century will be the 'Asian Century', 'Asian Age'" has been repeatedly articulated by the Turkish Asian Center for Strategic Studies (TASAM). Each country in the Asian continent has a special importance for the Asia Anew Initiative driven by four main pillars: "Strengthening intergovernmental relations", "increasing the trade capacity of the private sector", "improving academic cooperation", "widening the interaction or exchange between societies". In this context, Asia can also be broken down into four main categories, on a regional and country basis: "Central Asia" (Azerbaijan, Armenia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan) which is the inner territories of the continent away from the oceans, "East Asia" (China, South Korea, Japan, North Korea, Russia), "South Asia“ (Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka) and "Southeast Asia" (Brunei, East Timor, Indonesia, Philippines, Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam) which is located between the mainland and Oceania.

Since 2004, TASAM, which is the first think tank that initiated Asian studies with a holistic approach in Turkey, and its institutes in its network, mobilized a large number of bilateral and multilateral international instruments driven by a coherent and comprehensive vision, within an environment that gradually became more favorable for research than ever before. All instruments are orchestrated as a supplementary contribution to the capacity building efforts in a framework of different categories, such as bilateral and trilateral political communication mechanisms, country-based or region-based strategic dialogue programs, economy-oriented studies or research projects, International Turkish-Asian Congresses, among others, as well as specific activities such as forums, meetings, programs, projects, visits, reports, publications, and academic studies.

It is highly anticipated that the School of Schools-Asia, which was intended to provide strategic contributions to the Asia Anew Initiative with its available network and capacity, will take its place in this historical task with multiple instruments.
