A Comprehensive Overview Of The Projects Market In Algeria

With the projects market still feeling the impact of the 2008 Dubai real estate crash, it has been a difficult few years for the region's contractors. While Qatar and Saudi Arabia all offer attractive prospects, the growing amount of competition in those markets can make it difficult for companies to enter and succeed in them.

It is for this reason that many firms are now looking at the Algerian projects market with greater interest. With a fast-growing population and economy, plentiful cash reserves, and an ambitious government infrastructure plan, the North African state is today one of the most attractive prospects outside the GCC.

With $38bn worth of projects under execution and more than double that amount planned in the near term, the market is growing both in size and importance. Just as importantly, its spending plans are widely spread; oil and gas will continue to be a major sector, but rail, aviation, ports, roads, public housing and mining will also be significant growth areas over the coming decade.

The opportunities presented by the market are outlined in the latest report by MEED Insight, READ MORE >
