Chapitre 19; International audience; With a surface area of 2.38 million km2 and a coastline of 1,200 km, Algeria is the vastest country of the Mediterranean even if it does not have the longest maritime border. These two parameters reveal the potentialities but also the challenges which characterize the logistics sector and the agribusiness infrastructures of this country. Its economy is essentially based on hydrocarbons representing more than 50% of the GDP and 98% of income from exports. The strategic sectors including agriculture and the agro-food industry were ignored in development policies in the past. It is only during these last ten years that the decrease in food dependence is considered as a priority of the government.
