March 8: Untiring efforts to promote role of women in national economy
ALGIERS-Like all countries in the world, Algeria celebrates this Wednesday International Women's Day which comes in a national context marked by an intensification of efforts to support Algerian women and enable them to contribute effectively to the economic development of the country.
The foundations of this support have been laid through the commitment of the President of the Republic, Abdelmadjid Tebboune to promote the role of women in the country's economy, improve their social situation and strengthen their rights while ensuring a balance between different regions of the country.
The State has improved in recent years the policy of combating unemployment and has strengthened support for employment following an economic approach based on developing female entrepreneurship, the contribution of women to the momentum of development, and reducing the unemployment rate in women through incentives to ensure greater involvement of women in economic activity.
As part of this approach, the sector of entrepreneurship in Algeria experiences a frantic momentum having given place to the effective contribution of women in the economic field. The number of micro-enterprises has reached more than 41500 within the framework of the National Agency for Support and Development of Entrepreneurship (ANADE) and the National Agency for the Management of Micro-credit (ANGEM) and other bodies.
Regarding ANGEM, women have obtained 64% of micro-projects, a figure that shows the adherence of Algerian women to the process of economic development.
Regarding the support of women in entrepreneurship, ANADE launched last May the national network of women entrepreneurs "El Moukawila", a network whose objective is to promote women's entrepreneurship following an inclusive economic vision.
In accordance with the instructions of the President of the Republic at the meeting of the Council of Ministers on January 3, 2021, to boost the various mechanisms dedicated to the housewife, a national program for the economic integration of women has been launched, especially for rural women in order to encourage entrepreneurship and help them launch small projects that generate profit.
In the trade sector, the overall number of women traders in Algeria has soared by nearly 18% over the last five years.
In the agriculture sector, thousands of rural women have invested in the world of investment with economic projects generating wealth and creating jobs.
The number of rural women has risen to more than 60,000 women holding the "farmer's card".
