The economy of Algeria advanced 1.2 percent year-on-year in the third quarter of 2019, quickening from a 0.3 percent expansion in the previous period, as the oil sector rebounded (1.4 percent vs -8.3 percent in Q2), mainly supported by refining (33.6 percent) and liquefaction (22.6 percent) activities. On the other hand, growth slowed in industry (4.5 percent vs 4.6 percent); construction (3 percent vs 3.5 percent); commercial services (2.6 percent vs 3.1 percent), such as internal trade (0.8 percent vs 2.6 percent) and household services (2.7 percent vs 6 percent) and non-commercial services (0.9 percent vs 2.3 percent), namely public administration (0.6 percent vs 3.3 percent) and finance (4.8 percent vs 5.5 percent). Also, agricultural activity declined (-3 percent vs 1.8 percent), largely explained by a drop in crop production, especially those of cereals.

Algerian economy is highly dependent on petroleum and natural gas exports. It is estimated that hydrocarbons account for roughly 60% of budget revenues, 30% of GDP, and over 95% of export earnings. To insulate the Algerian economy from volatility in gas & oil prices, the stabilization fund was set up in 2000, which currently have under management more than 50 billion dollars.
