Mr. Abdelkrim Mansouri, General Director of ANDI, signed during the Algerian-Portuguese Business Forum organized on March 19, 2014 by the Ministry of Industrial Development and Investment Promotion, a Memorandum of Understanding and Cooperation with his counterpart, the General Director of the Portuguese Agency for Trade and investment (AICEP).

The signature of this protocol between the two institutions should contribute to strengthening economic relationships between Portugal and Algeria and will allow the enterprises of the two countries to get closer, in order to develop economic partnerships and promoting investment opportunities.

The exchange of experiences and good practices between the two agencies in promoting investment and training in the profits of their officers was planned for the next three years.

It offers one-stop shop services for investors like the decentralized One Stop Shop of ANDI and a world network dedicated to the promotion of particular products and services of Portuguese companies abroad.
