The Algerian Netherlands Business Council located in Algiers, Algeria, is dedicated to building bridges between private enterprises in the Netherlands and Algeria, as well as the respective central and local governments.

We work with companies from both sides of the Mediterranean that aim to achieve their goals by going beyond their own borders, and thereby facilitate these ambitious companies with the possibility to tap into the resources and opportunities offered by the other side. As North Africa is developing at a fast pace and hugely investing in all facets of the economy, our work further opens up business opportunities that will contribute to growth, whilst allowing for an exchange of expertise and know-how.

Our core business is to facilitate the introduction of your organization and your products in Algeria and the Netherlands, by offering guidance in your establishment as a trusted and sustainable partner from day one. We have strong ties with local enterprises, government organizations, ministries and embassies, and provide objective measures of business regulations and their enforcement across the Maghreb region. By offering our services in Dutch, French, English, and Arabic, the Algerian Netherlands Business Council ensures that language will not pose a barrier to your business ambitions.

You are kindly invited to contact our staff (see email/phone number below) and find out how we can cooperate.
