Algeria Economic Outlook

  • Growth reached an estimated 3.9% in 2015, mostly driven by agriculture and a rebound in oil and gas activity.
  • With approximately 49% of government revenues and 96% of exports depending on the oil sector, the drop in oil prices has reduced budgetary and external savings, underscoring the need to diversify the sources of public finance.
  • A process of urban transition begun in 1987-88 has led to 70% of the population’s 40 million people living in urban areas by 2015.
