Algeria Agriculture

As Algeria looks to curb its imports in the face of declining state revenues, the agriculture sector is well placed to contribute. Output improved between 2007 and 2017 thanks to efforts to clear some of the bottlenecks that have traditionally held back the sector’s development, such as legislation, land ownership and financing. Agriculture accounts for around 13% of GDP and employs some 11% of the country’s active population. Foreign investors are helping to speed up the development of large projects in face of population growth and rising demand, and as a way to move away from small-scale farming methods.

This chapter contains interviews with Abdelkader Bouazghi, Minister of Agriculture, Rural Development and Fisheries; and Abdelwahab Ziani, President, Confédération des Industriels et Producteurs Algériens.
