Algeria, another big North African country, also has new import and export rules, following an announcement by Egypt's central bank that Egyptian importers will only be able to use letters of credit from March.
According to the latest edition of World Tariff Profiles 2021 released by the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the United Nations Committee on Trade Development (UNCTAD), Algeria ranks fourth in the World with the highest import barriers with an average Tariff of 18.9 percent.
Algeria adopts a licensing system for the import of all final products. In addition, many Algerian importers will require a 100% letter of credit, but some Algerian banks, including some state-owned banks, have violated the letter of credit, or do not pay, return the order, do not call back and other dishonest behaviors, which damage the interests of exporters.
On the other hand, new regulations issued by the Local government in Algeria are rarely notified in advance and are usually implemented immediately, which is highly variable. Therefore, Chinese exporters must carefully evaluate Algerian buyers. In 2021, the number of Algerian importers dropped from 46,000 to 9,000 after the Algerian Ministry of Trade launched a business registration clean-up operation, and 37,000 importers disappeared from the Algerian market!
Algeria has implemented DAPS on imported products since 2018, authorizing the Ministry of Commerce to impose additional tariffs ranging from 30% to 200% annually on imported products in order to reduce imports and encourage domestic production. Starting from October 4, 2021, the provisional Additional Defense Tax (DAPS) will be levied on 992 imported products already produced in Afghanistan, ranging from 30% to 120%, and maybe expanded to 2,608 imported products in the future. Since 2018, Algeria has imposed a 1% mutual tax on imported consumer products to subsidize pension payments. This year, the new law will increase the contribution de Solidarite applicable to imported consumer products from 1% to 2%.
