GTI tries to establish effective and intensive communication with world thinkers from various countries.

GTI is responsive to changes in geostrategy and geopolitics due to changes in the new world order from unipolar world hegemony to a multipolar world order. GTI strives to be an active actor-agent providing enlightening views, supporting the provision of the best solutions for global humanitarian ideals. GTI encourages being an active-determinative think tank, seeks to create a new world order that is more spiritual, equal, multipolar, harmonious, just and respects human dignity.
