The President will visit Tunisia, Libya and Egypt in addition to Algeria in order to reassure that Argentina is conscious of developing nations and their significant role in global economics.

Last year, trade between Argentina and Algeria reached $874 million. A large phosphate export deal was signed prior to Fernandez's visit and meeting with President Abdelaziz Boutefilka, according to Algeria's official news agency.
