ALGERIA

The United States and Algeria relationship is characterized by mutual respect and cooperation. The U.S. has been supportive of Algerian independence, and both nations are committed to further improving the bilateral relationship through increased trade, education, and cultural partnerships. The two nations are allies in the fight against terrorism, an issue that is of particular importance to Algeria, which went through a black decade (1991- 2001) when the Fundamentalist of FIS (Front Islamique du Salut) set the nation into an era of terrorism, claiming over 100,000 lives. In this volume, we will address Algeria’s undergoing reforms to diversify its economy, the formation of a stronger democracy, and its effort to position itself as a pillar of stability in the region. The book will be published in early 2017. This book is made possible with the support of ETRHB Group and the Forum of Entrepreneurs of Algeria.
