Meloni on a trip to Algeria: the themes of the dialogue between the two countries

The President of the Council Giorgia Meloni the commitment to energy continues. With regard to the close relationship between Algeria and the Draghi government, the leader is ready to confirm and develop a close relationship partnerships strategic with Algeria. Not only energy, but also many other topics in the dialogue between the two countries.

Meloni intends to make Algeria a strategic partner and in his program he proposed a “Mattei Plan” for Africa in which Algeria will be the heart and bridge between the two shores of the Mediterranean. The president wanted to emphasize that such a pact should not take place through a “predatory system” (it sounds like a provocation to previous French interests in the area), but through collaboration. A symbolic declaration, which further links Italy – the figure of Enrico Mattei in particular – to the future of Algeria.

Algeria’s partners for natural gas: the report in numbers

Economic exchanges between the two Mediterranean “bridge” countries are substantial. the value is 7.33 billion euroswith 5.57 billion imports to Italy and 1.76 billion exports, as recalled the sun 24 hours.

the numbers are increasing for both imports and exports and are precisely due to the relationship created with natural gas. In fact, a large part of the value of Italy’s imports comes from the purchase of gas, while Italy exports machinery and petroleum products, but also chemical products and iron and steel, to Algeria.

In the future, the relationship between the two countries is destined to grow even more, with all the sectors listed above (from shipbuilding to tourism) at the forefront. Algeria can finally become a place of interest for investments in the pharmaceutical sector and more generally for start-ups.
