          - The desirable result: the execution of decisions and requirements of the economic development issued by                       the Arab League and relevant entities would lead to accelerating economic growth as a whole, achieving                         public welfare, raising per capita income and decreasing the effects of economic recession. Such effects                           include high levels of unemployment and negative social phenomena, including, but not limited to,                                   children labor, high levels of illiteracy and crimes of all kinds. 


  • Third aim: searching for the best successful international experiences concerning economic development and transferring them to the Arab world. 

      Mechanism: building a network of professional relations with economic and developmental entities in developed            countries and transferring the best of their experiences to the Arab world. 

         - Such experiences shall be activated and transferred on the ground through awareness and effective                                communication with decision makers through repeated occasions of the Union.

        - Obtaining a framework, which could serve as an Arab road map for the consolidation of integration                                 efforts in such field. 

        - Reserving Arab funds and capabilities in the Arab region as such capabilities contribute to increasing rates                     of growth and Arab cash reserve. 


  • Fifth aim: preparing common standards for Arab economic professions. 

      Mechanism: calculating/determining economic professions in the Arab world through coordination with                          concerned ministries and relevant entities (ministries of manpower and ministries of social affairs and labor), and          suggesting the minimum amount of qualifications and competencies required for such professions. 

      Desirable results: facilitating the mission of acquiring Arab workers in a fast and appropriate way through                      professional standards prepared previously, and exploiting its positive effects for saving the efforts, time and                  money of employers and Arab working cadres. 

       - Decreasing Arab unemployment rates. 

       - Raising the quality of the training of Arab youth through the exploitation of experiences gained from work. 

       - preventing Arab cash leaking caused by massive cash transfers performed by foreign workers, which                                contribute to decreasing cash reserve and burden economy. 

       - Achieving one of the components of Arab economic integration, which is the human component. 


  • Sixth aim: searching for the best investment opportunities that add an Arab economic value and providing them for the Arab private sector. 

      Mechanism: reviewing and evaluating Arab investment opportunities presented periodically by Arab commercial            and industrial chambers and providing them for the Arab private sector. 

      Desirable results: protecting time, effort and economic money wasted in searching for new less valuable                          investment opportunities, which may cause the absence of already existent investment opportunities that may have        integration and developmental contribution. Such contribution is not only beneficial for one of the Arab countries        but also beneficial for more than one country. 

      Directing projects towards integration dimension will lead to establishing a strong Arab economic entity that may          serve as a bulwark against economic catastrophes.
