Algeria: introduction import licences delays supply
23 February 2016


The decision of the Algerian government to require import licences for imported cement is causing delays in the supply of cement. However, the issuing of licences is progressing slowly and at a time when major cement plants are shut down for maintenance, the step causes shortages in the market.

In recent days, the price of a 50kg bag of cement has skyrocketed to DZD1900, according to Dennouni Abdelmajir, president of the General Confederation of Employers (BTPH).
