algeria flagIn a bid to boost the tourism industry’s capacity nationwide over the next three years, Algeria will add an additional 180,000 beds, Algerian Minister of National Planning, Tourism and Craft Industry Amar Ghoul.

He said that the expected 180,000 additional beds to be added to the currently available 100,000, would contribute to the creation of 100,000 new direct jobs.

The minister is currently on an inspecting tour of hotels, thalasso- therapy centres and travel agencies in Zeralda, Staoueli, Sidi Fredj, El Biar and Hussein Dey, some of which are still under development.

The tourism sector’s goal for the medium-term is to carry out projects providing 500,000 beds countrywide, the minister disclosed.

He also announced that the country would see the launch of 3,000 tourist projects this year.

In order to supervise the development of these facilities, the ministry has developed a programme to train both working staff as well as students at institutions of higher education and vocational training.
