Algeria Economic Outlook

  • The Algerian economy’s real growth was an estimated 3% in 2013, driven mainly by domestic demand, including public investment. This growth performance was achieved with inflation slowing to 3.3% thanks to the Algerian government’s efforts to control market liquidity, contain the expansion of demand for goods and services and increase supply.
