Estimated read time: 1'

On Monday, April 12, Algeria launched a commercial maritime line, connecting Algiers to Nouakchott in just five days, reports daily newspaper El Khabar. Algerian exporters hope that the new line will be a first step in facilitating access to the Malian and Senegalese markets. 

The Boukadoum department is indeed betting on Africa to revive the Algerian economy and recover the political ground lost in recent years. This opening comes as relations between the two neighboring countries are going through a good period.

The Algerian Minister of Interior visited the Mauritanian capital on April 1. A visit marked by the signing of a memorandum of understanding to create a border commission. Three days later, it was Mauritania's Foreign Minister who went to Algiers, carrying a message from President Mohamed Cheikh Ould El Ghazouani to Abdelmadjid Tebboune.

For the record, in August 2018, Algeria and Mauritania inaugurated the Tindouf-Zouerate border crossing.
