Algeria: Trade Suspended for Several High-value Processed Products

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Effective July 4, sources indicate Algeria's import licensing regime extended to include several high-value/processed food products, including almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts, pistachios, macadamia nuts and pecans. Algeria has not yet announced a timeframe for accepting import license applications or issuing them. Thus, imports of the affected products are suspended until such time. According to Post calculations, import licenses now adversely impact import demand of up to $155.9 million/year of previous U.S. agricultural and food sales. Further measures are expected.
