La Russia è intenzionata a sviluppare la cooperazione industriale e non solo con l'Algeria. Lo ha detto il primo ministro russo Dmitry Medvedev alla vigilia della sua visita nel Paese che prenderà il via oggi e nel corso della quale incontrerà i massimi vertici istituzionali dell’Algeria. “Le grandi aziende russe sono già impegnate nel Paese nei settori dell'ingegneria energetica e dell'esplorazione geologica così come nel settore automobilistico. Siamo pronti a rafforzare questa cooperazione nel settore del trasporto aereo, ferroviario, aerospaziale, nella farmaceutica e nell’agricoltura. Stiamo già collaborando in maniera proficua nel settore energetico e abbiamo molti progetti su petrolio e gas", ha osservato Medvedev che definisce “promettente” la collaborazione in campo agricolo."L'Algeria acquista grandi quantità di grano, mentre la Russia è il leader mondiale nelle esportazioni di grano. Una cooperazione più stretta in questa sfera può avere un impatto positivo sul nostro commercio”. Nel 2016, il commercio russo-algerino è raddoppiato raggiungendo quasi 4 miliardi di dollari.

Russia wants to develop industrial cooperation as well as cooperation in other spheres with Algeria, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said in an interview with the Algerian news agency APS. On Monday, Medvedev will arrive in Algeria where he will meet with country's president and prime minister as well as heads of both chambers of the Algerian parliament. The parties will discuss boosting the bilateral cooperation as well as sign a number of intergovernmental, interdepartmental and corporate agreements. "Our industrial cooperation is one of the most important areas. Large Russian companies, such as Power Machines and Gazprom, have been working successfully in Algeria’s power engineering and geological exploration sectors. Renault Russia delivers car bodies to Algeria for the final assembly. We plan to deliver 18,000 car bodies this year and have already shipped over half of this number. Plans for the future provide for expanding deliveries by shipping other car parts as well," Medvedev said. The prime minister also pointed out that Moscow was ready to export finished goods to Algeria as well as to engage in energy cooperation. "Of course, we are ready to export finished goods, including civilian aircraft, cars, farming and railway equipment, as well as machine tools. We are actively cooperating in the energy sector and have many successful oil and gas projects to our credit," Medvedev noted. The Russian prime minister also said called the bilateral cooperation in the sphere of agriculture "promising." "Algeria buys large amounts of grain, while Russia is the world’s leading grain exporter. We clearly can be useful to each other. Closer cooperation in this sphere can have a positive impact on our trade," the prime minister said. Medvedev added that the countries were also discussing cooperation in the spheres of mineral resources, water transportation, high technology, space exploration, construction and pharmaceuticals. In 2016, the Russian-Algerian trade doubled reaching almost $4 billion.
