APS - Energy cooperation: Algeria remains 'key partner' of Italy




APS-ALGIERS-Algeria, Italy's second-largest gas supplier, will remain a "key partner" in energy cooperation of this country which wants to boost and diversify the bilateral partnership, the Italian president, Sergio Mattarella, told national daily El Moudjahid in an interview published Saturday.

"Algeria is Italy’s second largest gas supplier. Taking into account the special history between the two countries and especially the major role played by ENI (first Italian hydrocarbon company), I am convinced that Algeria will remain a key partner also in the future," said the Italian president, who began a two-day state visit to Algeria on Saturday.

President Mattarella expressed Italy’s interest in "diversifying the bilateral partnership by exploring new collaborations with Algerian companies, in sectors (offering) new opportunities, such as renewable energy and energy efficiency." "These are sectors that are at the heart of Italian and Algerian energy transition strategies and whose economic opportunities will increase in the coming years."

The Italian head of State said his country was following with "attention" the implementation of the action plan of the Prime Minister and Minister of Finance, Aïmene Benabderrahmane. It is "an ambitious plan to improve the business climate to support the prospects for diversification of the Algerian economy, including opportunities for the new generations." "Italy wishes to accompany Algeria in this journey," President Mattarella said.

The Italian president called for an "effective partnership" between Europe and Africa on migration." "Europe and Italy are ready to act for real, effective and mutually beneficial change, including by contributing financially to the eradication of poverty and the achievement of sustainable development in countries from which illegal migration flows originate.”
