Tebboune was elected last December after more than a year of mass protests that toppled his predecessor Abdelaziz Bouteflika.

Tebboune has also announced plans to develop the non-energy sector to diversify the economy away from oil and gas and create sorely-needed jobs in the nation of 44 million people.
