The national strategy of tourism development in Algeria: issues, opportunities and limitations
The tourism sector in Algeria is in a paradox situation; on one hand we notice a deficit in accommodation capacity, in marketing, a lack of know-how in hostelry and restaurant etc. On the other hand, we find an attractive image and a shining touristic potentials and capacities. This situation may explain the Algerian poor position in the list of the best targeted destinations for tourism in North Africa and more generally in the African continent. In both public and private sectors, the Algerian officials were slow to react to changes in tourism markets especially with the emergence of the Eastern Europe and transfers of technology. The involvement of professional bodies in the animation of this important economic niche is required to allow better coordination of actions at regional and local levels. Algeria, ill-placed in this particular area, has no choice. But it is opting for an effective partnership in order to rationally exploit its potential in tourism by adopting a new strategy. But the questions asked are: Are we ready to compete for our share of tourist migrations? Is Algeria really prepared and ready to work on sustainable tourism?
