Implications of Sino-Algerian relations for development in Algeria and their Prospects
The Chinese economy ranked second globally after the U.S. economy. Despite this success, China seeks to strengthen its economic relations with many countries of the world’s continents and to link the economies of these countries by linking the world’s continents to a network of transport lines and routes (land, maritime, and digital) to strengthen international trade and economic cooperation. In 2013, an economic initiative was launched: “Belt and Road Initiative.” Algeria was a supporter of such initiative and had had relations with China since ancient times.
This paper aims to analyze the relationship between China and Algeria and the desired benefits at various levels. Therefore, the descriptive and analytical approach was adopted to present these relations and analyze their effects and implications.
It concluded that the Sino-Algerian relations are considered strong relations that transcended the economic and political aspects to include all aspects, particularly the social and cultural aspects.
