Who We Are
CAAN was founded as a bilateral Business Council where both Dutch and Algerian companies can join. Services and activities are offered to members and non-members.
CAAN is an international non-profit organization for trade. CAAN acts as the ultimate link between Dutch and Algerian companies. A platform where the economic actors of our two countries will meet and engage each other with the aim of increasing the economic and commercial partnerships. CAAN is responsible for the promotion and strengthening of relations, for economic exchanges, trade development and investment promotion between the Democratic Republic of Algeria and the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
Relations between Algeria and the Netherlands have existed for over 400 years; four centuries of relations dating back to 1604, the year of the signing of the first treaty between the Staten-Generaal of Holland and the Regency of Algiers. Economic relations between the Netherlands and Algeria are important. The transactions between the two countries are considerable with a positive balance of payment for Algeria. There are many opportunities for expanding economic cooperation between Algeria and the Netherlands.
Among the axes of cooperation defined between Algeria and the Netherlands are predominantly the sectors of : Energy, Renewable Energy, Agriculture, Agro-food, Water & Environment, Transport & Logistics. There is real potential for developing partnerships in those sectors.
