السياحة في الجزائر: الانجازات و العراقيل و تحديات أجندة الإصلاح
[Tourism in Algeria: achievements, obstacles and challenges of the reform agenda]


  • Benzarour, Choukri
  • Ramdhani, Smail


Algeria has many untapped tourism assets. This paper confirms many indications of an emerging tourism industry. There are also many obstacles that hinder the growth and expansion of the tourism sector. Therefore, it presents a selective analysis on the priorities of a deep reform, which passes through the preparation of a strategic work program and a gradual institutional reform aimed at undertaking the burdens of developing tourism that attract more tourists who spend more time and more money. The paper also addressed tourism security issues and the necessary openness to foreign investment and to the English language. The proposed reform agenda provides a road map for transforming tourism into one of the most important pillars of diversifying the Algerian economy and reducing dependency on hydrocarbons, and its implementation allows reaping significant benefits in the medium and long term.
