“Algeria  is the largest country in Africa and one of the richest nations on the  continent. It has seen considerable infrastructure and tourism investments over  the past years, and we want to support Algeria’s economic and social  developments as a strong international hospitality partner”, said Wolfgang M.  Neumann, President & CEO of Rezidor at the African Hotel Investment Forum  (AHIF) in Addis Ababa/Ethiopia.

“Algeria  offers huge potential for our core brands Radisson Blu and Park Inn by Radisson  and compelling investment opportunities in hotel real estate. Our objective is  to unlock value for both our partners and shareholders. We are pioneers at many  destinations – also in Tipaza where the Radisson Blu is the first internationally  branded hotel in the city”, added Elie Younes, Executive Vice President &  Chief Development Officer at Rezidor.
