A plant for the manufacture of Cable Cars



Quote:
The great demand on cable has prompted authorities to invest upstream, as a production unit of this means of transport is planned in Algeria.

*

A training institute will also be created. This was stated this morning Wissam El Moukahal, Director General of the Algerian transport company by cables (ETAC) broadcast on national radio. The plant will manufacture all cable cars and other equipment necessary for local needs. even plans to export to other countries, according to the guest of the radio. Regarding the training institute, he said he "will improve the performance of the ETAC workers."

Widely used in several cities, gondolas carrying nearly 4 million people each year, (the first country used this way for urban transport in the world) will undergo preventive maintenance from the first half of this year and will ready at the end of December, in El Moukahel. He added: "cable 11 exist in Algeria and several projects are outstanding achievement in various wilayas."

*ETAC which is the fruit of a partnership between the Algiers Metro Company (EMA) and the Urban Transport Company and Suburban Algiers (ETUSA) clearly defines these objectives and works for the profitability of the Algerian transport company by cable, through the rationalization of expenditure and acquire a significant share of customers. In this sense, "a joint ticket urban transport will be launched from next week," further explained the general manager of ETAC

King Mohammed VI Chairs Signing Ceremony to Establish Boeing Industrial Ecosystem in Morocco
Quote:
King Mohammed VI, chaired, on Tuesday at the Royal Palace in Tangiers, the signing ceremony of a draft agreement for the establishment of a Boeing industrial ecosystem in Morocco, a structuring project that will allow the Moroccan aviation industry to improve its position significantly at the international level.

This major project, which is a partnership between Morocco and Boeing, the world leader in aerospace technology, will give structure to an ecosystem composed of suppliers and organize a sourcing platform based in Morocco.

This ecosystem will generate an additional annual turnover from exports of one billion dollars, allow the setting up of 120 Boeing suppliers and create 8,700 new specialized jobs. To cover the training needs of its ecosystem, dedicated training programs specially designed by Boeing will be implemented.

At the beginning of the ceremony, a documentary movie was screened highlighting development witnessed by the aviation sector, one of Morocco’s global businesses, in recent years, as part of the Industrial Acceleration Plan, launched on April 2, 2014.

On this occasion, minister of Industry, Trade, Investment and Digital Economy, Moulay Hafid Elalamy, gave a speech before the Sovereign, in which he presented the main outlines of this project, which is a strong signal to the industrial world, confirming to operators the real capabilities of Morocco, especially in the most complex and high value-added sectors.

“The Moroccan aviation industry has witnessed, under Your enlightened vision, significant growth in recent years. The sector was multiplied by 6 in 10 years and has now 121 actors,” said Elalamy, noting that the Kingdom, which is ranked 15th in terms of investments in the aviation sector, was able to be among the few countries operating in this area.

Recalling the fact that a “locomotive” ecosystem reinforces the efficiency and attractiveness of the sector, while creating a virtuous circle of prosperity within the national economy, Elalamy said that Boeing industrial ecosystem will be a “real boost” to the aviation sector, like Renault and PSA ecosystems to the automotive industry.

President of Boeing “Commercial Airplanes” has, for his part, lauded the strategic vision of HM the King which enabled Morocco to invest in the high-tech aerospace industry. “Boeing is proud of the trusting relationship we had with Morocco and its aviation industry for nearly 50 years”, he said, adding that the “Kingdom offers unique opportunities that will benefit Boeing and our extended supply chain.”

“We are signing a significant agreement to enable more foreign investment and development of the aerospace industry here,” he noted, underlining that “we have collaborated with the government to develop an integrated industrial program of incentives to bring more Boeing suppliers to Morocco.

Boeing will also be an advisor to the government’s plan for a new vocational and educational training institute. This will provide a pipeline of skilled workers for the aerospace jobs of tomorrow, he affirmed.

Afterwards, the King chaired the signing ceremony of a draft agreement between the State of Morocco and aircraft manufacturer “Boeing” concerning the setting up of an ecosystem for aircraft parts manufacturing. The draft agreement was inked by Moulay Hafid Elalamy and Raymond L. Conner.

The King, then, decorated Raymond L. Conner. with the Alawite Wissam of Exceptional Rank (Grand Sash).

France, "strategic priority" for Condor smartphones
Interview with Farès al-Mousli, DG France



Quote:
The Algerian consumer electronics brand Condor does not hide its ambitions in France, a country that should serve as a "sounding board" to shine in both Southern Europe and Africa. His young and new boss for France, also responsible for development, explains the Digital Group strategy.



Condor ... Still absent from the French market, this brand of smartphones and mobile phones probably does not tell you much for the moment, but it should change very quickly as the ambitions of the Algerian company are immense. Condor is the subsidiary of the family group Benhamadi Antar Trade which, created in 1954, started in the food industry before diversifying and becoming a juggernaut of home appliances and electronics in the Mediterranean, with nearly 15,000 employees all branches combined and a turnover of more than a billion dollars (the conglomerate now includes activities in the food, construction, real estate, furniture, automotive, logistics, hospitality, renewable energy, in addition to home appliances and telephony). Condor even claims first place ahead of Samsung in its domestic mobile phone market. And the brand now intends to tackle the French market, with smartphones less than 300 € presenting a quality / price ratio that it hopes ultra attractive. While waiting to make our lab tests speak on his smartphones, we met Farès al-Mousli, the leader for France and responsible for the international development of Condor.



Les Numérique :
You are entering the French market with a new flagship, the Allure M3. How do you intend to make a difference?
Farès al-Mousli:
We are very proud of the M3. Our new smartphone has been very well received by distributors and everyone who has tested it. They like its design, its screen, its specifications, its elegance. People are "shocked" by its price of € 299, but in a good way, and wonder why buy more. We want to give the best of technology at the right price. Condor is a brand with a long-term vision on the French market. We are here to stay. France is the beginning of the European adventure. We will go slowly, but surely. With the right price. We will not participate in price inflation.


You arrive on a rather complicated market, with very strong competition. You will find before you Wiko and other aggressive Chinese brands. How do you hope to attract consumers to you?
We are in a commodities market. We would like the best smartphone to be in the hands of everyone. The idea is to tell people, "By buying condor, you will save money." But we are not trying to make low cost phones. We are currently present in the Maghreb - in Tunisia and Morocco in particular - and in West Africa. We have also started to establish ourselves in the Middle East. But our strategic priority is France, a market of 23 million aircraft. There is a way to manage the distributors who are partners, a way to treat the customer in the end. He will be free to buy or not a Condor. We are convinced to be very competitive. You know, we started in telephony in 2013. People told us then that we were great dreamers, especially with a Korean brand that crushed the Algerian market [Samsung, Ed]. And finally, in late 2017, we became the leaders in our market.
*
How many units sold does this represent?
In 2017, we sold 3.5 million smartphones and 1.5 million feature phones in total. In 2018, we are targeting 6 million units.
*
Will you be present at French operators?
Today, Condor already sells prepaid packs at SFR on features phones. We want to continue to develop this market. It's a beginning. But our goal is to be present in the shops SFR, Bouygues ... and with smartphones. It is on these devices that we want to make a difference. We will position ourselves online, with some partners in e-commerce, then we would like to integrate the large distribution to reach a maximum of world.
*
How does your range of smartphones look?
The cheapest smartphone costs 60 €. The most expensive is 300 €. We have four to five models per range and per year [three ranges: Claw, Plume, Allure, Ed]. The goal is not to launch all models at the same time. Allure M3 can do damage. It is aimed at lovers of technology, design and elegance. With its level of technical specifications, we want to shake the market [6.2-inch Full HD 19: 9 screen, 64 GB of storage, 4 GB of RAM, dual SIM, battery 3,050 mAh, Editor's note]. We have integrated the latest MediaTek SoC, the Helio P60 with artificial intelligence. The Face Unlock is 3D for more security and you can unlock the camera at night with the infrared sensor. It benefits from a double Sony camera on the back [16 and 5 Mpx, Ed] and premium materials. In TVs for example, our customers were able to afford a 43-inch for the price of a 32-inch of well-known brands. For the same price, they had something more. That's our philosophy.


Concretely, what is behind the Allure M3: your teams or Chinese partners?
There are several stakeholders. We do not claim to be able to develop our smartphones 100%. We do research, we study design, trends. A phone like this is getting ready 6 to 9 months in advance. Several months ago, our teams in China and Algeria worked closely with our Chinese and Korean suppliers to choose the concepts, designs, screens, and take the gamble to launch a notch. Nine months ago, no one knew that was going to be the big trend. We made this bet at that time. Our teams work on what we want to put in our devices and from there, our suppliers help us build our models. We have had partners since the beginning of the adventure that have seen us grow and support us. And then there is no secret: there are leading manufacturers on certain components. We address them and we assemble at home.
*
How many are you at Condor now?
At the start of the Condor brand in 2002, there were 10 people. Today, 6,500 people work solely in electronics. The group started with televisions with cathode ray tube. The first mobile phone factory was opened in 2013.



And in France ?
We have a dedicated team that we intend to strengthen. We bought a distributor that had about ten people [Evodial, the former distributor of Condor who was in liquidation, Ed]. We have already recruited four people to set up the operating mode, the business. And we will create a design lab in Paris. We will reach 50 direct jobs in France.
*
Do you assemble all your products in Algeria?
Yes. It allows us to be very competitive. The production costs are quite low. The cost of labor is 2.6 € per hour. It's 60% cheaper than Romania, and cheaper than China. And Condor is 2 hours by plane from Paris. We have the ability to manufacture 15 million phones in our factories. We are adding lines to open other markets.
*
Do you hope to become a kind of new Wiko?
Wiko is very respectable, but we prefer to have our own story. Our strategy is different. Our DNA, our business model, our philosophy are different. Our target markets are also different. We are at the gateway to Africa, a market of one billion consumers. It can go very fast. We seek to take pleasure.
*
... and still sell some smartphones, incidentally in France.
Sales of Condor phones will start in a couple of weeks in France. We start with the Griffe and Plume ranges from 60 to 189 €. The M3 and M3 Lite will be available for sale from June. The M1 Allure will also be launched. But the M3 is our spearhead. We want to exceed 500,000 sales in France this year, this is our goal. And in 2019, we target 2 million units all confused (prepaid packs and smartphones).

So you're not here to do figuration ...
No. We are a serious player in the market. We have demonstrated our ability to compete. Our sales exceed $ 1 billion, 80% of which is provided by consumer electronics. And mobile telephony represents 30 to 35% of the turnover of electronics. The smartphone is not for us a test product. It's long term.
*
What will be your targets after the French market?
Spain, Italy, Portugal and Belgium are also of interest to us. But that will be from France. We must succeed. It's our sounding board for neighboring countries, but also for North and West Africa.

Belarus, Algeria agree on joint production of haulers, lifts.
Quote:
(BelTA) – 28.04.2018


Belarus and Algeria will look into the possibilities of setting up joint companies to produce haulers and lifts. The agreement was reached during the visit of a delegation of the Belarusian Industry Ministry led by Minister Vitaly Vovk to Algeria, BelTA learned from the Belarusian embassy in Egypt. It was the first visit of the Belarusian industry minister to Algeria in the history of the bilateral diplomatic relations of the two states.

The parties discussed the ways to expand industrial cooperation, set up companies in Algeria to produce the Belarusian freight, passenger, farming, road and construction vehicles. “The parties agreed to set up a working group on industrial cooperation and work out possible ways of interaction in the production of haulers, lifts, and also in the engine-building and optics sectors. The parties will develop a roadmap to implement the projects,” the embassy said.



The Belarusian delegation also held talks in the Algerian Chamber of Commerce and Industry with representatives of Algerian companies interested in the supplies of Belarusian industrial goods and the implementation of possible joint industrial projects. Attending the meeting were more than 70 representatives of Algerian companies.

The Bellara steel complex operational by the end of 2019

its planner to participate in the satisfaction of the huge local demand of steel


Quote:
The Bellara steel complex project, the result of a partnership between Algeria and Qatar, is expected to be completed and fully operational during the fourth quarter of 2019, the board of directors of Qatar Mining said. Company quoted this Sunday by the Qatari media The Peninsula.

Located in the wilaya of Jijel, the Bellara steel complex is owned by Algerian Qatar Steel (AQS), a joint venture between Algeria (46% for Sider, 5% for the FNI) and Qatar Steel International (QSI). , 49%).

According to the same source, the completion rate of the project is about 96%. The project is expected to be completed and fully operational during the fourth quarter of the current year (Q4 2019), with the entry into service of the Bellara Direct Reduction Unit which is considered one of the largest units in the world.

The same source indicates that the plant will produce two million tonnes of reinforced steel of various sizes depending on the needs of the local Algerian market with the possibility of exporting certain quantities to international markets. The plant currently has 750 employees, and by the end of the project is expected to reach 1,800 direct jobs and 5,000 indirect jobs, it says.

JIJEL | Algerian Qatari Steel Complex | 2/4 Million TPY (3.2 Billions USD$) | Under Construction

One of the biggest worldwide at 260 hectare

AQS to start hot test at Algerian Bellara steel rod line soon


London — A 500,000 mt/year wire rod rolling mill will start its hot test at the Algerian Qatari Steel's (AQS) works in Bellara, Jijel province, 300 km (186 miles) east of Algiers, at the end of March, an executive at Danieli which is supplying rolling mills for the works, told S&P Global Platts on Wednesday.

The plant will have three rolling mills (one wire rod line and two rebar lines) in operation by the end of this year, allowing Algeria to become a totally self-sufficient producer of rebar and rods.

AQS started production at rebar rolling mill No. 3 (8-16 millimeters) in May 2018 and its rebar rolling mill No. 1 (16-40 mm) in October 2017. Each of the rebar rolling mills has a capacity of 750,000 mt a year. The wire rod line will produce 5.5-12 mm diameter rod

At present the facility is importing billet, but once its two melt shops are in in operation the company will produce its own and also install a direct-reduced iron plant with capacity of 2.5 million mt/year. The first melt shop is ready to operate and the second one will be ready mid-year, according to the executive.

The Bellara plant is a joint venture between Algeria's Sider Co. & National Investment Fund (holding a combined 51% stake) and Qatar Steel International (with the remaining 49%). The project was launched in 2015 with support from the Algerian government, which wants to reduce dependence on imported material.

Algeria's other domestic producer, Tosyali, has last year run all three of its rebar lines and one rod line, producing around 2.5 million of long steel, while Sider El Hadjar, the former ArcelorMittal Annaba, last year produced 200,000 mt of rebar and local sources say the same output is likely this year too.

Africa following in the footsteps of Europe, Asia to industrialisation

African industrialisation has to be among the most important things happening in the world right now.

The vast continent, with a population of more than 1.2 billion people, is home to an increasing fraction of people who are still mired in extreme poverty: By 2030, the World Bank projects that almost all the people in extreme poverty will live in sub-Saharan Africa. The reason is twofold. First, Africa’s population is growing rapidly.

Second, Africa has lagged in the industrialisation necessary to generate mass employment. The lack of strong, stable governments — a legacy of colonialism — has made it difficult to provide the education, infrastructure, court systems and other public goods that help prepare countries for the leap from subsistence farming to factory work.

Well-meaning Western aid and international development agencies couldn’t fill the gap. Meanwhile, nations in East Asia and Southeast Asia became the world’s factories before Africa did.

But late doesn’t mean never. Rising labour costs in China, and the threat of US tariffs are finally causing manufacturers to diversify their supply chains. Some of their factories will go to Vietnam and Bangladesh, two rising stars of the developing world. But those countries won’t be big enough to replace China, which means that if manufacturers really want to keep costs down, many will have to look to Africa.

INVESTMENT

This process is already well underway. In her The Next Factory of the World: How Chinese Investment Is Reshaping Africa, Irene Yuan Sun — a development-aid worker turned McKinsey & Co researcher — describes the wave of private Chinese investment sweeping the African continent. This investment often goes overlooked by the international press, which tends to focus on China’s splashy government-backed infrastructure projects and loans. But what Ms Sun describes is something else — Chinese businesspeople moving to Africa and building privately owned factories.

In 2017, Ms Sun’s research team estimated that there are about 10,000 such factories on the continent, and the number is surely higher now. Nigeria, Zambia, Tanzania and Ethiopia have the largest concentrations, but many other countries are in the mix. Although China still has less total capital invested in Africa than in other regions, it’s catching up fast:

That foreign direct investment — and manufacturing more generally — is one reason African growth is taking off.

The picture Ms Sun paints of Chinese capitalism in Africa is not always a pretty one. She cites anecdotes of corruption, pollution, overwork, injuries and managers’ disdain for local workers — phenomena that seem universal to every country in the early stages of manufacturing. But Sun argues powerfully that this ugly, costly process is still the only way that countries can escape poverty.

The programmes of liberalisation and deregulation offered by Western countries in the 1990s under the name of the Washington Consensus failed to produce the desired results. Development aid from rich countries has done some real good (and occasionally some bad) in Africa, but has not been enough to change the continent’s basic economic conditions. And with a few small exceptions like Botswana, natural resources have generally been more of a curse than a blessing.

MANUFACTURING

The only thing that reliably seems to transform poor countries into rich ones seems to be the so-called flying geese theory — the idea that manufacturing moves in waves, looking for the next cheap, politically stable production base. Now the geese are finally flocking to Africa. This isn’t the neo-colonialism that some fear — indeed, Ms Sun finds that Chinese factories overwhelmingly employ local African workers rather than imported Chinese labourers. Nor is there any sign that automation has made labour-intensive manufacturing obsolete. In other words, there is every indication that the process that brought Europe and Asia out of poverty is starting to work in Africa.
