The First Arab Economic Summit concluded here Tuesday afternoon, with leaders announcing resolutions on ending the Gaza crisis and steps to promote Arab economic and social development.

The resolutions, read out by Arab League Secretary General Amr Moussa at the summit's closing session, underscored the importance of reconstruction efforts in the Gaza Strip through a rehabilitation and construction program in coordination with the Palestinian National Authority.

Arab leaders called for continuing humanitarian assistance to Gazans suffering from three weeks of massive Israeli offensive, providing financial and technical support for the rehabilitation of infrastructure, health services, and improving living standards of Palestinians in the strip.

Due to the Israeli onslaught on the besieged Palestinian enclave that began on Dec. 27, 2008, the Gaza situation has dominated the two-day high-level economic meeting, attended by 17 Arab heads of state, the Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and the United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.

The summit also issued resolutions on promoting development in various economic and social fields in the Arab world.
