Algerian-Japanese relations




Japan is interested to contribute to Algeria's economic development as they are interested in the fact that Algeria possesses major energy resources and has a large internal market. There are Japanese companies which are interested in the Algerian five-year plan for 2009–2014, which provides for public investments of 286 billion dollars, notably to modernise and develop essential infrastructure.[2] Many Japanese employees of these companies came to Algeria for various projects.[3]

In 2010, Algeria withheld 100 billion yen ($1.2 billion) in payments owed to Japanese contractors for a highway construction project in the country as it was alleged that the companies had failed to meet the terms of the contract.[4]

In November 2017, Algeria started exporting liquefied natural gas (LNG) to Japan.[5]
