Algeria and Canada cooperate on infrastructures

12 January 2011

Last Monday, the Foreign Ministers of Canada and of Algeria signed a protocol of agreement in order to consolidate their cooperation, in particular on infrastructures.

"Both of our governments have agreed to extend the agreement on air transport concluded in 2006",  explained the Canadian minister Lawrence Cannon, who was quoted by the newspaper Le Quotidien d'Oran.

It will come about by "an increase in the number of flights with a view to encouraging massive growth in the partnership opportunities between our countries", he added at a press conference during his visit to Algeria.

Algerian foreign minister Mourad Medelci said that he wanted to extend this cooperation into activities with "great potential" such as solar energy, wind power, financial services and hydraulic infrastructures.

A project is in the process of being implemented in the production of aluminium, which requires an investment of seven billion dollars.
