ALGIERS- Minister of National Planning, Tourism and Craft Industry Amar ghoul underlined Wednesday in Algiers, the importance to strengthen cooperation between Algeria and Spain in the tourism field.
In a statement to the press at the end of an audience he granted to the president of the Balearic Insular Council Marc Pons Pons, Ghoul said that he broached, during this meeting “the prospects to strengthen bilateral cooperation through the exchange of experience and twinning between the training institutions in the areas of tourism and craft.”
On this occasion, he noted “the need to benefit from the Balearic Islands’ experience in the area of management and tourism-related infrastructure management,” especially as Algeria “considers carrying out 1400 new tourism projects,” he added.
The minister broached the possibility “to open up a tourist maritime line between Algeria and Majorca to create a tourist and cultural space and strengthen exchanges between the two parties.”
Ghoul invited his guest to attend the international conference on peace, security and tourism in the Mediterranean, scheduled in Algiers next September, in collaboration with the World Tourism Organization and various specialized associations.
For his part, the Spanish officials underlined the need “to establish cooperation between the two parties, especially as Majorca is only 30 minutes away by plane from Algiers.”
