This agreement also aims at boosting production capacities in engineering, railway, iron, steel and petrochemical industries as well as in the fields of infrastructures, renewable energies, energy efficiency, exploitation of resources and energies (oil and gas), mining, domestic electrical appliances and building materials.
During the meeting, the secretary general of the Ministry of Industry and Mining, Kheireddine Medjoubi, stressed the need for a strategic economic partnership, which should not be limited to trading.
