In summary, the event was a great success and once again established itself as the leading sector platform for Algeria. plast & printpack alger has been organised by fairtrade every two years since 2010, the event was once again significantly strengthened on the organisers' side with the arrival of Messe Duesseldorf in 2017.

The exhibition is complemented by the exportal. With the help of the exportal, exhibitors benefit from continuous visibility of their products and services, more value-added contacts and ultimately more sales. With the new free B2B service visitors can contact exhibitors and establish new business relationships. 

Investment in technology to increase local production, export and import substitution

According to the German mechanical engineering association VDMA, Algeria is one of the largest investors in plastics, printing and packaging technology in Africa and the Middle East. These technology imports enable Algeria to develop and diversify its own production, increase its exports and replace imports of consumables.

In this context, plast & printpack alger plays an important role in raising the awareness of the Algerian public for environmentally friendly materials and packaging and in familiarising the public with the circular economy.

plast alger: For some years now, Algeria has been investing heavily in the production of plastic raw materials in order to be able to gradually reduce these imports. Consumption and imports of plastic raw materials have increased by 10% per year over the last 14 years, from 304 kt in 2007 to well over a thousand kt worth more than US$2 billion in 2021. (EUROMAP) In the field of plastics technology, Algeria's investments amounted to 91 million euros in 2020.

printpack alger: Algerian packaging technology investments reached 136 million euros in 2020. Italy, Germany, France, Spain, China, Turkey and Austria are Algeria's main suppliers.  In the field of printing and paper technology, demand in Algeria is constantly increasing. Imports in this field have almost doubled in just five years, rising from 57 million euros in 2016 to 101 million euros in 2020, making Algeria, together with Egypt, one of the two largest importers of printing and paper technology in Africa.
