ALGIERS - President of the Internet Service Providers Association (AAFSI) Ali Kahlane called Tuesday in Algiers to assess the "e-Algeria 2013" strategy adopted in 2009 with the objective to develop, in five years, information and communication technologies (ICT). "The e-Algeria 2013 strategy is a major plan. But a few months of the end, nobody talks about it," said Kahlane during a debate at the Hilton hotel on the development of ICT in Algeria emphasizing the importance of what has been achieved and what remains to achieve under this strategy. After being adopted by the government in January 2009, the "e-Algeria 2013" plan was launched in order to achieve a qualifying leap in the development of ICT, including the Internet, in 2013. The plan, whose management was entrusted to the Ministry of Post and ICT, provided substantial public investment in ICT infrastructure including optical fiber, the training of human resources, and spread of new technologies and encouraging the production of content. The president of AAFSI criticized what he described as "blur" that surrounded the plan, he said to be ambitious and "strategic" since its launch five years ago.
