ALGIERS, Algeria

Nissan became the latest in an ever growing long line of car manufacturers to leave the UK over Brexit fallout.

 

The Japanese car company and its Algerian partner Hasnaoui Group have invested $160m USD to build a car assembly plant in the Algerian capital.

The plant will start production in 2020.
It is estimated that it will create 1800 new jobs.

Last year, Algeria banned car imports in a bid to cut spending and boost local factories due to lower oil and gas earnings.


Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Al-Sahawat Times than ever but advertising revenues across the global media industry are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a total paywall. We want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Al-Sahawat Times’ independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe truly ethical media and an unbias perspective really matters.

“I appreciate there not being a paywall: it is more democratic for the media to be available for all and not a commodity to be purchased by a few. I’m happy to make a contribution so others with less means still have access to information.”

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, the future of ethical media and the futures of our staff and their families would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support Al-Sahawat Times and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
