ALGIERS- Minister of Industry and Mining Abdesselam Bouchouareb said Tuesday, in Algiers, during his meeting with the Tunisian Minister of Energy and Mining Hela Cheikhrouhou that the Algerian-Tunisian partnership in the mining sector,
particularly at level of border regions “will be boosted,” said the ministry in a communiqué.
“Algeria and France are united by strong and diversified relations that we work to boost through projects that generate wealth and jobs for the youth of both countries,” said Bouchouareb.
“Priority will be granted to the development of bilateral relations in the mining field at the border regions, which contain considerable mineral resources,” added the minister.
