Transcript of Project Algeria
Hydrocarbons (oil and gas) are the engine of the Algerian economy, providing about 65% of public revenues, 26% of the gross domestic product (GDP), and 98% of export earnings
The Algerian economy is largely based on hydrocarbons, and the country is a significant source of petroleum for the United States and of natural gas for Europe.
U.S. exports to Algeria totaled $1.13 billion in 2010, and U.S. imports
From Algeria reached $13.29 billion in 2010
They are somewhat prosperous. They make over $12 billion from just America, they are obviously prosperous.
Economics reflect part of the current political state, because if they are a rich government they probably have enough money to make changes in their laws and rules. When their citizens are opposing them, they should be able to change their laws accordingly, to make everyone happy. Western influence There is some western influence in Algeria. The Algerian cities are a mix of Western influence and Arabic tradition. All marriages used to be prearranged. While many still are, not all marriages are arranged by one’s parents. Women were just getting rights in 1948, in Algeria, while the U.S. gave them freedom over twenty years earlier. This is evidence of Algeria becoming more and more like America, albeit slowly. Projections for your country’s future We approximate that the sector saw real increase of 3.2% in 2009, down from 7.0% in 2008 and 16.6% in 2007. Nevertheless, the fact that the sector has managed to maintain a optimistic increase marks it out from numerous other countries, which have experienced severe recessions in construction output over the last year. Algeria sits at the top of the regional rankings in our newly updated Business Environment table. The Algerian construction business grew at a CAGR of 14.33% over the review period, led by the housing and infrastructure construction markets. With huge reserves of oil and natural gas, Algeria has developed good trade relations with numerous developed nations, which, by improving employment and income levels, led to growth in the commercial construction market. This shows that the economy is being repaired. A Timeline of Events In March 1954, 9 Algerian rebels formed a revolutionary committee, the FLN. They started fighting for their independence in November that year. Algeria gained its independence in 1962. Ahmed Ben Bella was declared the premier once Algeria won its independence. Ahmed was killed in 1965. Houari Boumedienne replace Ahmed as the premier. He modified the socialist policies, while he focused most of his effort on removing unemployment and illiteracy In 1962 there was a fire, called “The Devil’s Cigarette Lighter”, that burned for 6 months, until it was put out by Red Adair, a firefighter from Houston, Texas that served in WWII. In 1964 the last French troops left Algeria. In 1971 Algeria nationalized French oil companies. In 1973 OPEC announced that it was cutting back on exports of oil to Japan and Western Nations. This turned into an oil embargo for about three months. This caused the price of oil to quadruple. Algeria signed a secret deal with China for the fabrication of the 15MW Es Salam reactor at Ain Oussera. The announcement came online in 1993. During the 1980s, Islamic fundamentalism became a much stronger movement. This caused riots several times. In 1988 there was a four day PLO meeting, during which the delegates proclaimed a Palestinian state. The government of Algeria declared a state of emergency to quell spreading Muslim fundamentalist unrest in 1992. Mohammad Boudiaf was killed in 1992, by his body gaurd, while he was the president. In July 2001, President Abdelaziz Bouteflika became the first Algerian President to visit the White House since 1985 Bibliography "AlgeriaÂ Â ." The 2011 Legatum Prosperity Index. N.p., n.d.
