    Algeria African Economic Outlook 2017

    In 2016, real GDP grew by 3.5% down from 3.8% recorded the previous year on account of lower oil price. The government adopted a new economic growth plan (2016-30) focusing on the private sector and a three year budget stabilisation strategy. The non-oil and gas industry accounted for no more than 5% of GDP in 2016, compared with 35% at the end of the 1980s, so the authorities are looking towards a re-industrialisation of the country.
