ALGIERS – Wednesday, 14 December 2022 (APS) – The President of the Republic, Abdelmadjid Tebboune said Tuesday that the phosphate mine in Tebessa and the iron deposit in Gara Djebilet (Tindouf) were two strategic projects for the future of Algeria.

Algeria will invest in phosphate, “a product of great importance because of the disruption that knows this mineral on the international market,” said President Tebboune during his visit to the stand of the Company of Phosphate Mines (Somiphos), on the occasion of the opening of the 30th Algerian Production Fair “FPA 2022” at the Exhibition Palace (Pins Maritimes, Algiers).

Calling this project a “battle” that is important to win, the President of the Republic stressed that the country had “all the skills and qualifications to implement this project.”

More than 250,000 students graduate each year from Algerian universities, hence the need to move towards the best, he continued.

Regarding the iron deposit of Gara Djebilet (Tindouf), President Tebboune emphasized the need to “increase production levels as soon as possible” and accelerate the completion of the railroad in the region.
