A high-ranking Algerian official was recently asked if he thought the ambitious goals of the new Four Year Plan could be realized. Without hesitating, he replied Of course, we will achieve the objectives of the Plan even if it takes us ten years to do so. This mixture of confident optimism tempered by realism is a common trait these days among Algerian leaders. After years of relative stagnation, the economy is beginning to move.
