Algeria, through its human development policy, has made a “significant progress” allowing it to make up for social deficits and improve people’s living conditions, said a report on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in Algeria 2000-2015.
“The gross domestic product (GDP) per inhabitant has increased by 2% a year and household consumption, in relation to job creation and wage hikes, has substantially increased (4,9% a year in volume),” according to the report released as Algeria celebrates the National Day of Diplomacy.
“On the whole, inequalities have been reduced as the share of 20% of the population who consumes less has increased from 7.8 % in 2000 to 8,4% in 2011,” according to the report, which pointed out that the national guaranteed wage “rose by 200% between 2000 and 2014.”
Such a situation allowed Algeria to “improve its ranking, winning 24 positions between 2000 and 2014, as it rose from the 107th to the 83rd.”
Algeria was also one of the ten countries with the most advanced human development index between 1970 and 2010, the report said.
