Partners for a New Beginning

PNB-NAPEO Algeria Local Chapter

Launched in April 2011, the Algeria Local Chapter serves as the local governance structure of PNB-NAPEO initiatives in the country. Its main objective is to identify regional and local economic opportunity priorities and then initiate and sustain efforts to address these priorities, work with other PNB-NAPEO local chapters to sustain regional priorities and programs, and act as the main partner for the Aspen Institute.
