The Minister of Industry and Mines, Youcef Yousfi, assured Indian Ambassador Satbir Singh Tuesday in Algiers of the availability of the services of his ministry to accompany Indian companies to invest in Algeria, particularly in the field of mines, a ministry statement said.


The meeting focused on strengthening the partnership between the two countries.

The Indian ambassador expressed the interest of certain Indian groups to form partnerships with Algerian companies involved in the exploitation and development of phosphates and to extend these partnerships in a second phase to other mining sources, according to the same source.
