Algeria Telecoms & IT

Internet infrastructure and usage have developed rapidly in Algeria in recent years, helping to pave the way for the growth of IT segments. The sector, however, is about to enter a challenging period as a result of reductions to government spending. Despite the impact this is likely to have, ICT is likely to remain a strategic priority in years to come, as the government seeks to capitalise on the sector’s high potential in line with its efforts to diversify the country’s economic base. This chapter contains interviews with Mouatassem Boudiaf, Deputy Minister for Digital Economy and Financial System Modernisation; and Nunzio Mirtillo, Head of the Mediterranean Region, Ericsson.
