Algeria foreign exchange reserves fall USD6.1bln




(MENAFN) Algeria's Central Bank Governor Mohamed Loukalas said that foreign exchange reserves fell by $6.1 billion so far this year to $108 billion mainly due to high imports bill.

However, Algeria had set import restrictions to reduce spending and protect its reserves after oil prices started falling in mid-2014 and hit state finances in the North African OPEC state.

Overall, the latest official figures show imports reached $15.42 billion in the first four months of this year, declining only by 0.14 percent from the same period in 2016.
