Sino-Algerian relations refers to the current and historical relationship between Algeria and the People's Republic of China. The two states have traditionally strong relations. In 2010, relations were considered the strongest of all Arab-Chinese relations.[1] Relations are focused primarily around commercial ties.[2]

Chinese development finance to Algeria[edit]

From 2000 to 2011, there are approximately 9 Chinese official development finance projects identified in Algeria through various media reports.[3] These projects range from an offer of a preferential loan of about 48 million USD in 2004,[4] to the construction of an opera house at a total cost of 300 million yuan in 2010.[5]

Energy[edit]

As of 1996, Algeria had two nuclear reactors, one of which was a heavy water research facility built by China. Algeria signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty in June 1996.[6]
