Algérie : quelle présence économique chinoise ?

Abstract : The image of relations that plunge into the history of both countries is vivid and the press is not stingy with statements reminding us of this : “China has given its support to our national liberation struggle – no one has forgotten it in Algeria – and the Chinese also remember that Algeria sponsored the resolution that allowed the People’s Republic of China to resume its seat at the United Nations”. Beyond these historical encounters, China is of course this immense country of the “economic miracle” – even if recently and in the eyes of some people this miracle could seem like a mirage. And some observers point out that “present in Algeria for two decades, the Chinese have ended up feeding clichés and other stereotypes” which, if they reveal a profound ignorance of the Chinese presence – sometimes accompanied by a rejection of otherness – do not conceal that this ignorance is not only the fault of the population, but also that of the leaders. The following points are successively addressed : 790 Chinese companies, did you say ? . Investment and service provision - Chinese direct investment projects in Algeria . The amount of Chinese investment in Algeria . Sino-Algerian trade . Three Algerian import sectors . An opportunity, but for whom ?
