Minister Bouchouareb confirms next step for cementing Algeria-UK economic ties

The Algeria-UK Investment Forum 2016 is highest-profile event in Algeria, to date, to focus on economic relations with the United Kingdom and will take place in Algiers, on May 22nd. HE Prime Minister Abdelmalek Sellal will lead the forum, which will discuss opportunities for deepening and broadening the economic partnership between the UK and Algeria in priority sectors, including Financial Services, Energy, Hydrocarbons, ICT, Healthcare, Education and Manufacturing.

The Forum aims to build on the success of the highly acclaimed UK-Algeria Trade & Investment Forum – hosted by DMA in December 2014 and attended by over 400 high-level representatives – and was formally announced by Hon Abdesselam Bouchouareb, Minister of Industry and Mines, at his recent meeting with Lord Risby, the Prime Minister’s Trade Envoy to Algeria.

“The last Algerian-British economic forum was organized in London – in December 2014 – and the next one is scheduled for May,” said Bouchouareb. “It will be a major meeting between the two countries’ economic operators and which will strengthen and continue what we have already discussed in the previous forum.”

Through plenary and more targeted sessions, the event will also focus on opportunities under the new US$ 47 billion five year development plan 2015-2019 recently approved by the Algerian Government to boost public investment in key economic sectors such as transport and logistics and to improve economic performance, modernise infrastructure and build partnerships for a long term diversified and sustainable economy.

DMA is delighted to be organising the Forum on behalf of the Government of Algeria, in partnership with UKTI and the FCO. To register your interest in this invite-only event, please email
