Another question I asked concerning Algeria news:

What are the hidden treasures of Algeria that the world needs to know?

This person loved the music. Rai music in particular, and recommended, Cheb Khaled & Cheb Mami.

Furthermore, the history is unique. It became independent after more than a million and a half Algerians were killed in a 7 years fight for independence from France in a struggle that is considered as one of the greatest revolution against colonialism during the twentieth century.

Why should some one invest in Algeria?

Algeria's leading sectors attracting Foreign Direct Investment [FDI] are the energy sector, followed by telecommunication and tourism.

Officially, the government remains committed to economic liberalization and continues to seek foreign investment in sectors such as the infrastructures, telecommunications, energy and water supply. There has also been a noticeable reorientation of the FDI toward the domestic market, through an efflorescence of developmental projects in transport and infrastructure.

I would personally invest in the telecommunication sector, as this sector will be major in the next couple of years. Read more on the future of the telecommunication sector

What makes Algeria unique?

Algeria is a key supplier of oil and gas. It is the third highest supplier of gas to Europe, after Russia and Norway.

There was a general consensus when I asked various people about the uniqueness of Algeria. Most of them said the history. [explained above]
