مبادرة “اليد الممدودة” التي أطلقها رئيس الجمهورية ترمي إلى لم شمل جميع الجزائريين

أكدت مجلة الجيش في عددها الأخير أن مبادرة “اليد الممدودة” التي أطلقها رئيس الجمهورية, السيد عبد المجيد تبون, تهدف إلى “لم شمل كل فئات الشعب الجزائري دون تفرقة وتمييز”, معتبرة أن تغليب المصلحة العليا للوطن ورص الصفوف من شأنه تمكين الجزائر من “التصدي للأعداء والحاقدين”.

وأوضحت المجلة في افتتاحيتها لشهر يونيو الجاري أن “تغليب المصلحة العليا للوطن ورص صفوف الشعب هي من بين الشروط الأساسية التي تمكن بلادنا من التصدي للأعداء والحاقدين و وضع حد لمحاولاتهم المتكررة لتمزيق نسيج مجتمعنا والمساس بمعنويات شعبنا عـن طريق بث خطب الضغينة والبغضاء ونشر الشائعات والبلبلة وتزييف الحقائق والوقائع واستدراج ضعاف النفوس إلى مستنقعات تفوح غدرا وخيانة”.

وأضافت في هذا السياق أن “مبادرة “اليد الممدودة” التي أطلقها مؤخرا رئيس الجمهورية, القائد الأعلى للقوات المسلحة, وزير الدفاع الوطني, السيد عبد المجيد تبون, تهدف إلى لم شمل كل فئات الشعب الجزائري دون تفرقة وتمييز لخدمة بلادهم مع طي صفحة الماضي”, مشيرة إلى أن كل الجزائريين مدعوون اليوم إلى “الانخراط في عملية بناء البلاد والتطلع إلى غد أفضل وأجود”.

وتابعت الافتتاحية أن رئيس الجمهورية اعتبر هذه المبادرة “أكثر من ضرورية, طالما أنها ترمي إلى تكوين جبهة داخلية متماسكة, تقف من جهة في وجه كل الحملات التشويهية التي تستهدف بلادنا, وتساهم من جهة ثانية في النهوض بالبلاد والدفع بعجلة التنمية الوطنية”.

وفي ذات السياق, أشارت إلى أن المبادرة “لاقت استحسان وانخراط الطبقة السياسية وكذا البرلمان بغرفتيه كونها “الحاضنة لجميع بنات وأبناء الوطن””. واستطرت المجلة بأن الجيش الوطني الشعبي كان “كعادته السباق في دعم وإسناد كل المبادرات الخيرة التي تخدم الجزائر”, مذكرة في هذا السياق بقول رئيس أركان الجيش الوطني الشعبي, الفريق السعيد شنقريحة, بأن هذه المبادرة ترمي إلى “تمتين اللحمة الوطنية وتقوية الجبهة الداخلية”, وهي تنم عن “الإرادة السياسية الصادقة للسلطات العليا للبلاد من أجل لم الشمل واستجماع القوى الوطنية لا سيما في هذه الظروف الدولية الراهنة”.

كما أكدت المجلة أن مبادرة رئيس الجمهورية, “تضاف إلى الانجازات والمكاسب التي حققتها بلادنا من خلال استكمال البناء المؤسساتي وإرساء دولة العدل والقانون وإضفاء أكثر ديناميكية على السياسة الخارجية, إضافة إلى الدفع بعجلة التنمية الاقتصادية وإيلاء أهمية قصوى للجانب الاجتماعي, ترجمتها إجراءات عملية تصب في صالح المواطن”.

وبهذا الخصوص أشارت المجلة إلى أن الرئيس تبون تمكن من “إرساء قواعد وتقاليد جديدة في مدة لم تتجاوز ثلاثين شهرا منذ توليه مهمة قيادة البلاد”, حيث وشح مختلف مناحي التسيير ب”رمزية غابت عنها منذ عقود”, مؤكدا بذلك أن “المشروع الإصلاحي المتكامل الذي يحمله قد اكتملت أسسه وقواعده وبدأت تلوح معالم جزائر جديدة وتتجسد عمليا على أرض الواقع وتعمل بجد وثبات تحت قيادة رئيس منتخب جامع للشمل”.

من جهة أخرى, ذكرت المجلة بأن الخامس من يوليو “تاريخ مفعم بالنصر والغلبة ومناسبة عظيمة وعزيزة على كل جزائري”, داعية إلى اغتنام مناسبة الذكرى ال60 لعيد الاستقلال من أجل “إرساء قاعدة انطلاق جدية تنسي الماضي البغيض وتتطلع إلى مستقبل واعد”.

New law on investment to attract local, foreign investments with regional dimension.

Minister of Industry Ahmed Zeghdar affirmed that the new bill on the investment will allow, once it comes into effect, attracting local and foreign investments with national and even regional dimensions in the next few years.

In a interview granted to the site “Aldjazair Al-An” (Algeria now), the minister said that the bill provides mainly for defining the missions and prerogatives of the National Investment Council in proposing the national investment policy and reorganizing the National Development and Investment Agency (ANDI) by changing its appellation to give it an Algerian character at the international level, to become the Algerian Agency for Investment Promotion and placing it under the authority of the Prime minister.

At the level of the agency, a single window will be created for big projects and foreign investments. Decentralized windows will be strengthened to become the only interlocutor of the investors at the local level and will help support and accompany the investors in the execution of their projects.

The new law provides for the digitization of the procedures related to the investment process, through the creation of a “digital platform for the investors” that will be run by the Algerian Investment Promotion Agency and which will enable providing all the necessary information to the investors, including the investment opportunities, the mechanisms in charge of investment and the advantages related to the investment.

It aims at restructuring the investment incentive systems and directing them towards priority sectors and towards the regions to which the State attaches a special interest or those with a particular importance for the national economy, while broadening the scope of guarantee of the transfer of invested money and its revenues to non-resident investors.

President Tebboune has put Algeria back on African and Mediterranean scenes, MENA region.

Since the election of the President of the Republic, AbdelmadjidTebboune, Algeria has imposed itself as a new competitor in Africa, in the Mena region (the Middle East and North Africa) and the Mediterranean basin.

Once elected, President Tebboune was aware of what awaited him domestically and internationally. The country does need acts wore than words.

The head of state did not waste time and quickly launched the institutional, economic, and political projects to change the practice of power and rethink a new democratic model.

It was also necessary to give a new impetus to a disempowered diplomatic apparatus. To achieve this goal in a very short time, President Tebboune has placed Algeria on the world chessboard.

Under the leadership of President Tebboune, Algeria is ensuring that it remains at the heart of the international scene. Algeria is involved in all regional and international issues.

Algeria is preparing to organize an important Arab Summit; a promising summit intended to bring together Arab countries, especially in such a time of turbulence.

Moreover, with the advent of the new world order, President Tebboune is strongly requested by his peers to put back the movement of Non-Aligned in the saddle.

Algeria is inescapable, and the posture of its president, who never oscillates from one position to another like a pendulum, contributes to its influence.
