  • The opening up of the Algerian economy has made rapid progress over the past few years thus enabling its entry into the market economy.
  • The legislation and regulations provide measures to encourage and facilitate the efforts of all investors, without distinction between domestic or foreign capital.
  • In this context, Algeria has provided itself with an investment code modified by the ruling No. 01-03 of 20th August 2001 concerning the development of investments.
  • This ruling offers a series of advantages to investors and has introduced the instruments necessary for a policy of investment promotion such as the National Investment Council chaired by the Head of the Government, the National Investment Development Agency (ANDI), with its central structures and its one-stop units which bring together all the administrative sectors concerned by investment action. The Agency also manages the Investment Support Fund.

Required Information[edit]

  • Business name
  • Bank account number
  • Criminal records
  • Notarized information

Need for the Document[edit]

Algeria currently has a very favourable macro-economic situation.
The good performance of crude oil prices and the efficacious management of the external debt have helped to fill the State�s coffers.
However, the purchasing power of the inhabitants remains relatively limited.
In this context, the government is making an effort to give a boost to activity, to diversify and liberalize the economy and call upon private investment.

Information which might help[edit]

  • The legal and taxation systems in Algeria are well established and based on French and Islamic Law. The systems are opaque and difficult to understand. Professional advice should be sought.
  • Operating as a corporation or LLC does more than protect your personal assets�it tells customers, vendors and lenders that you are serious about service and success.
