MUSLIM STATES ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY PROGRAM
This new program involving governments and multinational corporations is designed to create sustainable economic opportunity in the poorest, predominantly Muslim, countries. This program will build on the successes of ICEG’s nineteen economic policy institutes in nine Muslim countries in several ways;
  1. The experts – economists and others -- providing technical advice will primarily be from Muslim "resource" countries defined as those with established policy institutes and the technical capacity to assist other Muslim countries which have no policy institutes, or with very weak technical ability,
  2. There is a significant role for multinational – U.S. and foreign -- corporations in job creation through outsourcing and reciprocal trade with
  3. There are near-term and long-term elements; realistic trade and job creation programs, and economic policy and institutional reforms for the long term, and
  4. Respected economist from institutes in key Muslim countries will lead the effort – it is not U.S. based and directed.

The concept is Muslims helping Muslims, supported by those with the largest stake in the outcome, seeking near-term income opportunities and long-term policy reforms.
