The Export Trophy 2019 ceremony, organised since 2003 by WTC Algiers, rewarding best Algerian non-hydrocarbon exporting company, has been given to Condor, specializing in electronic equipment and household appliances.

Trade Minister Said Djellab; guest of honor of the ceremony, has called on Algerian companies to take advantage of the African Continental Free Trade Area (ZLECAF) to strengthen the position of local products in African markets.

"This free trade zone is a very good opportunity for Algerian economic operators to place their products and services on the continent free of customs duty," Djellab said.

According to the minister, this mechanism of African economic integration will also develop Algerian border regions and areas and accelerate access to new markets on the continent including West Africa.

The launch of ZLECAF is scheduled for July 7, at the 12th Extraordinary Summit of African Heads of State and Government in Niamey, Niger, but will come into effect in July 2020.
