L’Expression: Nationale – The Smell of Business in North Africa

Algeria’s diplomatic return is confirmed by the volume of trade between European countries, including those from Northern Europe.

Much ado about the “Spanish” issue and the suspension, by Algeria, of the Friendship Treaty with the Iberian Kingdom. To follow the litanies that merge here and there about this event, it seems that all Algerian diplomacy is focused on the fate of Spain and its actions. In reality, Algeria has a thousand other things to do. She has incredible powers. As a pivotal state in the world in general and in the region in particular, it is gaining in importance. It is the reality on the ground that confirms this proven realignment of Algeria at the diplomatic level. The 7th session of the Algerian-American International Governmental Council on Trade and Investment (TIFA), which took place in Algiers, is a strong sign of the well-thought-out and defined diplomatic relations between Algeria and the US. This is a diplomacy whose interests are determined by reciprocity and economic and commercial relations. In this sense, the observers analyze this session in which Algeria and the US come together as “a meeting that provides for the treatment of several points, including access to the markets of the two countries and the strengthening of bilateral relations and contacts between the actors in economic relations , will boost trade and economic relations between the two countries and promote cooperation in several areas where the United States is a leader, such as start-ups, advanced technologies, education, higher education and scientific research,” they say. Algeria does not turn its diplomacy into a blackmail tool or a tool to play spoilsport against any process that enables and aims at stability and international peace.This creed has given Algeria a prominent place in the international community.The diversification of economic and trade partnerships is a sign that the Algerian diplomacy is not rigid; on the contrary, it puts itself in a position where pragmatism and political realism are the tool of choice, able to consolidate its place in the bosom of international diplomacy. In this regard, senior Algerian officials have paved the way for a new approach aimed at promoting foreign investment by ensuring that “the country’s high authorities work to encourage foreign investment in Algeria through a series of reforms aimed at improving the business environment and making the Algerian market more attractive for investment in new sectors.Algeria’s diplomatic return is confirmed by the volume of trade between European countries, including Northern Europe (Scandinavian countries).Algeria organizes in May 2023 the 20th meeting of African foreign ministers and their colleagues from the Scandinavian countries This means that Algerian diplomacy on all fronts must weigh its weight in the perspective of ensuring its diplomatic mission, in its capacity as a force for peace and stability in the world. Its predominance in Africa as a regional power gives it the status of a state of means par excellence to dispel the disputes and conflicts manifested in Africa and other regions of the world. Another great country showing its satisfaction with its bilateral relations with Algeria is Canada. The 3rd Session of Algerian-Canadian Political Consultations in Algeria, co-chaired by the Secretary General of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the National Community Abroad, Rachid Chakib Gaïd on the Algerian side and the Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, Cynthia Termorshuizen , on the Canadian side, proves, if any, that Algeria is in the process of establishing diversified and effective diplomatic relations between the major countries and at the international level, without altering its diplomatic policy, based on reciprocity and unequivocal respect for its political sovereignty and his diplomatic teachings. The litanies we hear here and there are nothing but buzz and chatter with no expected echoes.
