This Direct Line, hosted by U.S. Ambassador Joan Polaschik, will detail the growing opportunities in Algeria’s infrastructure sector. The Government of Algeria has announced plans to invest $215 billion in publicly funded infrastructure during 2015-2019, focusing on hospital construction and renovation, transportation infrastructure, wastewater management and desalination, and ports/airports. The largest share of this public expenditure will be allocated toward the construction of five hospitals, and the renovation of approximately 15 hospitals. Through its sovereign wealth fund, referred to as the Fonds de Regulation des Recettes (FRR), Algeria is well positioned to expand its robust infrastructure spending of recent years. These Government of Algeria investments in public infrastructure will generate opportunities for U.S. firms throughout the infrastructure supply chain. Deadline for RSVPs: Tuesday, April 14, 2015.
