Algeria – Economic diplomacy – Visit by Laurent Fabius (May 12, 2015)


Laurent Fabius will pay a visit to Algeria on May 12, accompanied by representatives from French companies. He will discuss our main bilateral projects as well as regional issues with his Algerian counterpart, the prime minister and the highest authorities in Algeria.

In Algiers, Laurent Fabius will co-chair a follow-up meeting of the Algerian-French Joint Economic Committee (COMEFA), which took place in November 2014. This meeting will be devoted to three key sectors: transport, housing and living environment, and agrifood. Before the next COMEFA session, scheduled to take place in October 2015, we would like to strengthen our partnership in all areas and work on other joint projects in the industry, renewable energy and tourism sectors.

Laurent Fabius will also visit Annaba, in order to participate in the inauguration of the CITAL plant (streetcars), the result of a French-Algerian partnership in which ALSTOM is notably involved.
