Algeria

2. Bilateral Investment Agreements and Taxation Treaties

Algeria has signed bilateral investment treaties with Argentina, Austria, Bahrain, BLEU (Belgium-Luxembourg Economic Union), Bulgaria, China, Cuba, Denmark, Egypt, Ethiopia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Indonesia, Iran, Italy, Jordan, Kuwait, Libya, Malaysia, Mali, Mauritania, Mozambique, Netherlands, Niger, Nigeria, Oman, Portugal, Qatar, Romania, Russian Federation, Serbia, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sudan, Sweden, Switzerland, Syria, Tajikistan, Tunisia, Turkey, Ukraine, United Arab Emirates, Vietnam, and Yemen.

In 2001, Algeria and the United States signed a Trade and Investment Framework Agreement (TIFA), and its council met most recently in Washington, D.C. in October 2018.

Algeria has trade agreements with the European Union and the Arab League, although neither has been fully implemented.  Recently instituted import barriers violate the terms of both agreements. The Algerian government concluded two years of “renegotiation” talks with the European Union in March 2017.  None of the trade terms of the 2005 EU-Algeria Association Agreement were modified, but the European Union committed to approximately USD 43 million of technical assistance for various Algerian ministries.

Algeria does not have a bilateral taxation treaty with the United States.  Algeria has bilateral taxation treaties with the Arab Maghreb Union (Libya, Mauritania, Morocco, and Tunisia), Austria, Bahrain, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Canada, China, Egypt, France, Germany, Indonesia, Iran, Italy, Lebanon, Portugal, Qatar, Romania, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey, and United Arab Emirates.
