Washington — Prime Minister Abdelmalek Sellal met Tuesday in Washington with the heads of three American industrial groups with whom he discussed about investments and business opportunities in Algeria.
On the first day of the US-Africa Summit, Sellal met with the heads of the American economic world, by receiving Geffrey Emmelt, CEO of American energy giant General Electric (GE).
With Emmelt, Sellal reviewed General Electric's projects in Algeria in health and energy sectors and broached the possibility of launching, in partnership with the American group, other new investments.

Liveris said he is ready to visit Algiers in the next few weeks to talk about the details of these investments with the concerned officials.
