The agricultural sector of the country is poised to expand due to the export marketplace. It is very possible that it will become an international competitor. Algeria wanted to increase the agricultural area by up to eight percent and began working toward that goal, with an expected ultimate completion of this by 2013.
There are growing opportunities for investment that are also receiving support. This is especially prevalent in local markets such as olive oil, milk and potatoes. With the increase in this market, there are other sectors such as processing that will see growth as well.
Algeria also has a productive natural gas resource. This resource gives Algeria the ability to develop petrochemical business. This development of petrochemical resources will influence other business arenas such as textiles, construction, plastics and automobiles. The country is also placing emphasis to industries such as energy, mining, hydrocarbons and steel. The country sees that with increases in the business sectors, unemployment issues will, in turn, be addressed.
Algeria is also looking to the private sector to reap some of these rewards as well, using tourism. The idea is that visitors to the country have benefits through creation of new community jobs. Things that are found only in Algeria such as buildings, crafts and so on will be an attraction to visitors. With support for both the public and private sectors, growth is imminent.
