Prime Minister, Abdelmalek Sallal, will meet with representatives of the National Federation of Young Contractors, to discuss the points that are agreed upon at the national meetings of small and medium enterprises, that were held two months ago.

It is about the mandatory allocation of the institutions under the cover of ANSEJ, ANGEM and CNAC Of 20% at municipal-level deals, under a decree that was issued in 2014, and which was not yet applied, as the representative of these institutions will be involved in commissioning committees at the municipal level soon.

Head of the National Federation of Young Contractors, Khaireddine Hamel, told Echorouk that a meeting would be held within days with the Prime Minister, Abdelmalek Sallal, to delineate the list of demands that were submitted during the meetings of the institutions preceded by the inclusion of representatives of "ANSEJ" in the committees to grant deals in the municipalities, to ensure that they benefit from 20% of transactions, as stipulated in Article 20 of the Transactions Act of 2014.

According to the spokesman, orders will be given to the mayors and the state's governors to give priority to these young people to benefit from the real estate, whether it comes to industrial or agricultural lands or shops. 

"A study by the Prime Minister's services indicate that the beneficiary youth of the operating system loans pays annually at least 120 million centimes, as the cost of leasing the shop, which "stifles" these institutions and sends them to bankruptcy on several occasions. This file was settled at the level of 4 provinces, and the procedure is expected to be applied across all provinces."

Representative of the young contractors added that a green export license would also be granted to these companies, which produce what can be estimated at half a million national products, bearing the label "Made in Algeria", under the orders of Prime Minister Abdelmalek Sallal, for public institutions and ministries to grant them the necessary facilities and priority to enter the national market and even the foreign market through export. 

"It is unreasonable for public institutions to choose to acquire foreign products at the expense of the national product, which is conform to standards. They are obliged to buy half a million of local products instead of importing. "

According to the spokesman, the files of the owners of the mills, who have not been able to receive their wheat quota since 2011, will be discussed with the Minister of Industry and Mines, Abdesslam Bouchouareb, to grant them the license so that they can benefit from the wheat quota from the office under the tutelage of the Ministry of Agriculture, Rural Development and Fisheries. 

In this framework, the past few days over 12 files out of a total of 25 were settled, awaiting the rest for next week.

In addition to enabling the public works companies to obtain building materials, especially the cement which is brought forward by the factory to eliminate the speculations in this product, as they do not get the cement extraction from the factory only once every 5 months.

In this context the largest facilities and priority will be given to foreign telecommunications companies and small enterprises that are contracting with Algeria Telecom, through the activation of the agreement that was signed in 2011.
