    Mercredi 25 Juin 2008 -- "Cette huitième session de la commission mixte algéro-vietnamienne se tient à un moment où nos deux pays viennent de célébrer le quarante-cinquième anniversaire de l'établissement de leurs relations diplomatiques, célébration qui a mis en évidence la qualité des relations politiques qu'entretiennent l'Algérie et le Vietnam ainsi que la constance de leurs liens traditionnels de coopération", c'est ainsi qu'a entamé M. Mustapha Benbada, ministre de la Petite et Moyenne entreprise et de l'Artisanat, son discours lors de la cérémonie d'ouverture des travaux de la 8e session de la commission mixte algéro-vietnamienne, en réunion, à Hanoi, depuis lundi et qui a pris fin hier. Et d'ajouter que "les nombreux échanges de visites de haut niveau qui ont marqué les années 2007 et 2008 et qui témoignent de notre conviction que la coopération algéro-vietnamienne peut prendre des dimensions beaucoup plus grandes et se diversifier de manière significative".

    L'évolution des relations bilatérales est satisfaisante, a estimé le ministre. Elle s'est traduite par un accroissement sensible de nos échanges économiques dont le volume a atteint en 2007 près de 55 millions de dollars alors qu'il n'était que de 30 millions de dollars en 2004 et de 18,4 millions de dollars en 2003. Benbada a estimé que le volume des échanges demeure modeste et ce, en dépit des immenses potentialités économiques existantes entre l'Algérie et le Vietnam. C'est pour cela que le ministre a invité les opérateurs économiques vietnamiens à s'impliquer résolument dans des actions de coopération en Algérie et devenir, ainsi, des acteurs importants du développement des relations bilatérales, à l'instar des opérateurs économiques chinois, indonésiens, coréens et singapouriens, lesquels participent, activement, dans la réalisation d'importants projets d'infrastructures dans le cadre du programme de soutien à la relance économique. D'autant plus que "les liens historiques qui nous unissent, la qualité de nos relations politiques et la volonté partagée de conférer un caractère privilégié à notre coopération constituent autant d'atouts de nature à constituer la base d'un partenariat exemplaire et que la complémentarité de nos économies offre de larges possibilités d'accroître de manière substantielle nos échanges économiques et commerciaux et de développer une dynamique de coopération fructueuse", a-t-il ajouté.

    En marge des travaux de cette session, M. Mustapha Benbada, qui a été reçu en audience, lundi, par M. Nguyen Minh Triet, président de la République socialiste du Vietnam, a eu, ce même jour, des entretiens approfondis avec M. Bul Wuan Khu, vice-ministre du Commerce et de l'Industrie et M. Hoang Tuan Anh, ministre de la Culture, des Sports et du Tourisme avec lequel Benbada a signé un programme d'échange culturel entre l'Algérie et le Vietnam pour la période 2008-2010. Les travaux de cette huitième session ont été sanctionnés, d'une part, par la signature entre les deux co-présidents d'un procès-verbal, et d'autre part, l'adoption de plusieurs recommandations qui ont permis d'identifier de nouveaux segments de coopération de nature à donner un nouvel essor aux relations bilatérales.

    HA NOI, July 10, 2008 — Viet Nam exported US$38 million worth of goods to Algeria in the first six months of the year, representing a year-on-year increase of 14 per cent.

    Coffee accounted for most of the total at $33 million. Mechanical equipment followed at $890,000 and frozen fish at $788,000.

    Vietnamese products favoured in the Algerian market include sport shoes, labour uniforms and handicrafts.

    The majority of Vietnamese products exported to this market are semi-finished, and shipped via a third-party before heading to the northern African country.

    Viet Nam plans to increase exports to Africa, the Middle East and South Africa to $2.3 billion this year, a year-on-year increase of 33 per cent. The major products targeted include rice, coffee and footwear.

    According to the Ministry of Industry and Trade’s Department of African, Middle Eastern and South Asian markets, Vietnamese products are considered to be competitive and of high quality in these markets.

    Last month, in a meeting with the Algerian Minister of Small and Medium-sized Enterprises and Handicrafts, President Nguyen Minh Triet expressed his determination to boost trade of oil and gas, agriculture, healthcare and construction with Algeria.

    Last month, 8 Vietnamese businesses partipated in a four-day international fair in Algeria’s capital city Algiers that started June 7. The Vietnamese firms showcased handicrafts, fine art and garments.

    The event also includes a conference between businesses and experts to discuss measures to boost trade.

    Samedi 12 juillet 2008 -- Les exportations vietnamiennes vers l’Algérie ont augmenté de 14 % durant le premier semestre de cette année, comparativement à la même période de l’année dernière, affichant un montant de 38 millions de dollars, a indiqué hier la presse locale. La plus grande partie de ces exportations est composée de café, qui représente un montant de 33 millions de dollars contre 890 000 dollars pour les équipements mécaniques et 788 000 dollars pour le poisson congelé. D’autres produits comme les chaussures de sport, les combinaisons de travail ou encore les produits d’artisanat sont également présents sur le marché algérien. Le Viet Nam compte accroître ses exportations non seulement vers l’Algérie mais sur toute la région de l’Afrique et du Moyen-Orient pour les porter cette année à 2,3 milliards de dollars, soit une augmentation de 33 % par rapport à l’année dernière. Le ministère de l’Industrie et du Commerce vietnamien considère que c’est une région où ses produits sont «compétitifs et de haute qualité». Le mois dernier, lors d’une rencontre avec le ministre de la PME et de l’Artisanat, M. Mustapha Benbada, le président du Viet Nam, Nguyen Minh Triet, a exprimé la volonté de son pays de booster davantage les échanges commerciaux avec l’Algérie, notamment dans le domaine du pétrole et du gaz, de l’agriculture, de la santé et de la construction.

    November 4, 2008 -- On the occasion of Algeria’s National Day on November 1, the nation’s Ambassador to Viet Nam, Naceur Boucherit, spoke to Viet Nam News.

    Viet Nam’s export turnover with Algeria in the first six months of the year exceeded US$37.8 million, which was 14 per cent more than the same period last year. What are the most popular Vietnamese goods in Algeria? Do you have any suggestions to boost Viet Nam’s exports to Algeria?

    Two-way trade values have registered an increase over the last few years. The main Vietnamese products exported to the Algerian market were agricultural, notably rice, coffee, tea, pepper, and cashews. This array of exports could be widened, particularly to aquaculture products. Vietnamese importers are looking for Algeria’s competitive products, including petrol, steel, chemical components, equipment and machines, as well as agricultural products such as wine, dates, and olives.

    However, bilateral trade between the two nations has remained relatively modest considering the potential of the two nations.

    The two countries should concentrate on finding ways to take advantage of their economies to build a co-operation strategy that is mutually beneficial and able to build on the friendly relations that have always linked Algeria and Viet Nam.

    Our two countries should pursue economic exchanges to encourage business. For example we could:

    – Encourage economic entities of the two countries to increase economic exchange missions to seek opportunities. Each country’s chamber of commerce can help to implement the 2004 agreement signed in Algeria.

    – Provide information about each country’s economic opportunities, mainly on exchange and finance to commercial and investment regulatory bodies.

    – Pursue application of the agricultural co-operation agreement signed in Algeria in 2004. Also, continue to pursue agreements in other sectors, including transportation, notably air and sea, to bring the two countries closer together and facilitate exchange of goods.

    Over the last few years several Vietnamese delegations have participated in seminars hosted by Algerian organisations, most notably visits by high-level officials to the seventh joint meeting in March 2006.

    Algerian businessmen in both the private and public sectors visited Viet Nam for the first time a few months ago. Their activities in Ha Noi and HCM City were attended by several Vietnamese enterprises from diverse sectors, and have helped to create a new dynamic of exchange between Algeria and Viet Nam.

    How about your plans for cultural programmes between Algeria and Viet Nam?

    We now hope to build cultural exchanges in addition to our current political, economic and commercial ties with Viet Nam. Our two countries have agreed to hold cultural exchanges between 2008-2010.

    This programme aims to intensify friendly relations between our countries and create a co-operative environment for exchange of cultural experience in areas such as film, calligraphy, painting, fine arts, libraries, museums and the preservation of traditional cultures.

    The two ministries in charge of culture will be able to initiate and co-ordinate common activities to help promote and develop bilateral cultural exchanges through exhibitions of paintings and sculpture, film weeks and participation in national and international film festivals.

    Although cultural exchanges do not typically have a lot of funding at their disposal, there are some activities that don’t require substantial resources. Economic groups from each country should take part in the promotion of cultural exchange and sponsor cultural activities to do their part.

    Algeria has carried out a $16 billion project to modernise its railway system from now to 2025. Can you brief our readers on this endeavour?

    A vast infrastructure programme has been underway in the last few years with unprecedented mobilisation of public funds. Concurrent with an economic improvement programme between 2001-2004, notably in agriculture, hydropower and education, Algeria launched a complimentary programme (2005-2009) to connect the Wilayas (Provinces) of the south and high plains. The total cost of these massive projects invested by the Algerian state from 2001-2009 has grown to almost $200 billion.

    You have cited in your question the modernisation of our railway infrastructure, but other projects should be noted, including tramways for several Algerian cities, the East-West Highway, a metro, and the construction of a million homes and several universities.

    I would like to highlight two principal projects:

    First, the East-West Highway: This is considered Algeria’s project of the century. Spanning 1,216km to connect Annaba (which borders Tunisia) and Tlemcen (which borders Morocco), it will run through 24 provinces. Its construction has several benefits, including a boost in activities among the construction and public sectors. Around 100,000 jobs have been created and new investment opportunities have been hatched for the development of Africa.

    Second, considerable advancements have been made in a project commissioned by the President of the Republic to build 1 million homes. To date domestic and foreign enterprises have participated in this $18 billion project.

    These programmes are just examples of several throughout the country. They constitute, in my opinion, a possible entrance for Vietnamese enterprises into the Algerian market.

    Vietnamese enterprises have a good chance to win contracts thanks to their capacity, experience and because they have already contributed positively to several infrastructure development projects in Algeria. They should be responding to tenders for more contracts.

    February 12, 2009 -- The PetroVietnam Exploration and Production Corporation (PVEP) has secured a firm foothold in Algeria after striking an important agreement on February 12 to drill for oil and gas in the country.

    The agreement establishes a joint venture between PVEP, Thailand’s national exploration and production company PTTEP, and the Algerian petroleum group Sonatrach.

    The 25-year project has a total capital of nearly US$2 billion, of which PVEP holds 40 percent, PTTEP 35 percent and Sonatrach 25 percent. It is scheduled to become officially operational in 2011, yielding an initial annual output of about 2 million tonnes of crude oil or 20,000 barrels per day.

    PVEP has weathered numerous difficulties over the past six years to penetrate the Algerian market, underlining the capacity of PVEP in particular and PetroVietnam Group in general. This recent success promises to open up many new opportunities for further investment in Algeria.

    HANOI, March 9, 2009 (Xinhua) -- Vietnam's export turnover to Algeria reached a record high of 75.63 million U.S. dollars in 2008, a year-on-year increase of 87 percent, according to the information center of Vietnam Ministry of Industry and Trade on Monday.

    Coffee took up the biggest share of 73.2 percent of the Vietnam's export market to Algeria, with export revenue of 29.63 million U.S. dollars in 2008.

    Other big market segments of Algeria were given to Vietnam's exported pepper, rice and seafood with revenue of 3.16, 2.48, and 2.44 million U.S. dollars respectively, said the center.

    Meanwhile, Vietnam spent more than 1.2 million U.S. dollars to import goods from Algeria, with major imported items of raw cashew and wasted steel and ion.

    In future, Vietnam's key goods of potential for export to Algeria are coffee, rice, pepper, seafood, garment, footwear and construction materials, said the center.

    To explore potentials in the Algerian market, Vietnam exporters are trying to establish diversified channels to enter Algeria in the years to come, especially through both domestic and foreign trade promotion agencies.
