The letter of the president

Dear members,

It is a great pleasure to welcome you to YOUR website, namely that of the American Chamber of Commerce.

Thanks to all the members of AMCHAM, as well as the determination of a team which pulled out all the stops to make it happen, the site is finally up and running. I take this opportunity also to thank on your behalf UPS which has sponsored the creation of this site.

The American Chamber of Commerce in Algeria is a not-for-profit organisation. It aims to develop activities and offer services which will promote, facilitate and protect trade, industry, tourism and the investment of capital as well as the commercial and financial relations between Algeria and the United States of America.

Our activities are directed towards:
1- Lobbying by way of meetings, dinners and debates between business leaders and the decision makers at the level of government and major industry.
2- Opening networking opportunities through seminars, conferences and exhibitions.
3- Providing information and documentation to operators to aid their respective business activities.
4- Providing services to members such as training, shadowing and assistance in the search for business partners.

This website is an essential link in the Algerian-American business community, and should serve as a catalyst for the continued cooperation between the two countries. Access is available to all American companies wishing to invest and do business in Algeria, to algerian companies which are already in business with American companies as well as to Algerian firms having the intention to engage in business with US firms.

Our goal is to provide a fluidity of information which in turn will facilitate the coming together of business men and women from the two countries. We strongly believe in encouraging cooperation between Algerian and American companies in all industry sectors. This website is an indispensable building block for the accomplishment of this goal.

The site is open to you all. We hope that each of you will find information of interest here, which will then contribute to the continued development of Algerian-American relations.

The President

Ali Azzouz
