There was a time when, for the Spanish primary sector, Algeria was one of the main extra-community markets for sectors such as beef and sheep meat, as well as for fresh fruit and vegetables. Specifically, if we go back to 2014, it ranked third among non-EU countries, reaching 56.3 million euros (82,544 tons). The sectors most affected by the paralysis of commercial transactions, have pointed out from the Spanish Federation of Associations of Exporting Producers of Fruit and Vegetables (Fepex), are nursery plants and, above all, fruit trees. Specifically, Algeria happens to be one of the main non-EU markets in both cases.
