Combine harvester fleet renewal to allow saving USD450 million/year

SIDI BEL-ABBES (Algeria)- Combine harvester fleet renewal will make it possible for Algeria to save USD450 million per year, Minister of Industry,Ssmall and Medium-Sized Enterprises and Investment Promotion Cherif Rahmani said Tuesday.

In a press briefing following a visit to the National Company for Agricultural Machinery Manufacturing (CMA) in Sidi Bel Abbes (440-west of Algiers), and which include a combine harvester plant set up in partnership with Finland, the minister said Algeria loses USD450 million every year because of the use of old machines.

Accompanied by the chief executive officer of Finnish company SAMPO and Finland’s Ambassador to Algeria during the visit, Rahmani said more than 15 million quintals of wheat is lost due to the use of old combines.

The plant’s production capacity is to be increased this year from 500 currently to 1.000 combine harvesters in 2013.
