Découvrez 8 bonnes raisons de voir pourquoi l’Algérie est votre prochaine meilleure décision et pourquoi vous devriez investir dans ce pays :

Une économie stable, s'ouvrant sur le monde

Algeria’s economy is dominated by its export trade in petroleum and natural gas, commodities that, despite fluctuations in world prices, annually contribute roughly one-third of the country’s gross domestic product (GDP). With an average 3% GDP Growth over the past 15 years, these revenue allowed the country to actively develop its infrastructures and invest in education. Algeria is well aware of the danger of being highly dependent on the oil & gas revenue and with the recent protests leading to the resignation of President Bouteflika, a new President has been elected, forming a government that has taken as first measure in January 2020 to repeal the famous « 51-49 law » (the law preventing any foreign company to detain more than 49% of the stakes of an Algerian company), opening the country to a real foreign investment destination.

6 secteurs prioritaires à développer


The new government formed in January 2020 has designated the development of the industrial capacities of the country as a strategic priority for the following sectors : Metalworking, hydraulic binders, electrical and household appliances, industrial chemistry, mechanics and automotive, pharmaceutical production, aerospace, construction and ship repair, advanced technology, food processing, textiles and clothing, leather and timber products, wood and furniture industry, and Mines.


Well aware of its position in the mediterranean region with several commercial ports facing the European Union and several International Airports, Algeria is actively pushing the development of its subcontracting capacities to feed European factories.


With 1622 km of coastline on the mediterranean sea nearly virgin of tourism infrastructure and a geography offering ski slopes to giant desert dunes only 2 hours from main European capitals, Algeria is probably the most promising destination for tourism investment for the next 10 years. The country has activated an extremely ambitious programme to promote these investment, with important tax incentives.


Due to its geographic location, Algeria has one of the highest solar deposits in the world. The duration of sunshine on almost the entire national territory exceeds 2000 hours annually and can reach 3900 hours (highlands and Sahara).

The energy received annually on a horizontal surface of 1m² is almost 3 KWh / m² in the north and exceeds 5.6 KWh / m in the Great South. The government has set as target the installation of a capacity of 22000 MW by 2030, of which 4500 MW by 2019. This program concerns solar, thermal, biomass and wind.

Algeria is coming from very far in what regards ICT as the country had the reputation to have one of the slowest internet in the world. Today Algeria is ranked 35th in mobile broadband, after being 44th in 2018 and 98th in 2016, an increase of 63 positions since 2016. In January 2020 the new government has nominated a Minister-delegate for Start-ups who’s only mission will be to promote the development of the digital economy, technology parks, the introduction of e-money and e-services, data and data base security.


Agriculture is an important factor in the economy of Algeria. It itself generates, without the food industries, nearly 12.3% of gross domestic product (GDP) in 2017, but with significant variations depending on the year depending on weather conditions. The agricultural sector employed 10.4% of the active population in 2017 with 1.14 million workers.

Since the 2000s, agriculture has become one of the government’s priorities in order to diversify its economy, still dominated by oil production.

The main plant productions are cereals, which are largely in the surface, arboriculture, vegetable crops, in particular potatoes, citrus fruits and fodder. Livestock occupies a significant place, in particular sheep breeding and poultry farming.

In 2014, Algerian agricultural production reached 35 billion dollars, making it possible to meet the country’s needs at 72%. But Algeria must import milk and cereals at a cost of around 4 billion dollars. It is indeed these last two products which constitute the main Achilles heel of national agriculture and which prevent it from achieving, at least in the short term, food self-sufficiency3.

But the increase in its national agricultural production between 2016 and 2018, thanks to the modernization of agricultural production tools and techniques and the generalization of irrigation programs by public authorities, the country is getting a little closer to its objective of food self-sufficiency by 2022.
