The Prime Minister, Mr. Aïmene Benabderrahmane, chaired, on Wednesday, a government meeting devoted to the sectors of Public Works, Digitization and Statistics as well as Housing, Urbanism and Towns, says a press release from the Prime Minister’s office:

“The Prime Minister, Mr. Aïmene Benabderrahmane, chaired, on Wednesday 20 April 2022, a Government meeting held at the Government Palace.

At its weekly meeting, the government discussed the following items:

In the Public Works sector:

A draft executive decree was presented, establishing the public utility of the operation relating to the construction of two tunnels in Chéraga, province of Algiers.

This project concerns the construction of two 2×2 lane hoppers on the RN 41 national road:

A first hopper at the Sidi Hassen roundabout near the former Souk El-Fellah in Chéraga.

A second hopper at the intersection (roundabout) of the RN 41 with the CW 111 leading to Ain Benian.

It is part of the road programme aimed at modernising the local network and increasing the capacity to cope with the ever-increasing traffic flows.

With regard to the preparations for the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the regaining of national independence:

The Government heard a communication presented by the Minister of Moudjahidine and Rightful Claimants on the state of progress of the preparations for the launching of the festivities and events planned for the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the recovery of national sovereignty, which will start on 5 July 2022 and will last until 5 July 2023.

In Digitalization and Statistics sectors:

A presentation was made by the Minister of Digitisation and Statistics on the establishment of a platform for sharing administrative documents.

This is part of the implementation of the roadmap of the sector in charge of digitalisation, relating to the development of “e-government” and the acceleration of the digitalisation of the administration.

This platform will also facilitate government work by significantly reducing the use of paper in the exchange of information and documents between central administrations.

In Housing, Urban Planning and the City sector:

The Minister of Housing, Urban Planning and Urban Affairs presented a communication on the evaluation of the housing policy.

In this context, the presentation highlighted the significant efforts made by the State to ensure citizens’ access to housing, particularly for the underprivileged, with the realization of nearly 3 million units, all segments combined during the period 2010-2021, or an annual average of 270,000 units.

These achievements required the mobilisation of nearly DA 5,000 billion from the State budget, i.e. an annual average of DA 456 billion, including more than DA 2,500 billion for social housing (i.e. 51%) and DA 1,326.97 billion for the hire-purchase segment (AADL).

An evaluation of public housing policy has been undertaken and has made it possible to formulate proposals for reforms able to remedy the main shortcomings that have marked the system of financing and construction of housing”.
