ALGIERS, Nov. 25 (Xinhua) -- The Algerian-French relations will be marked by a new impetus during the visit of French President Francois Hollande to the North African nation next month, Algerian Minister of Industry Cherif Rahmani said here Sunday.

Rahmani said so at a joint press conference with Jean-Pierre Raffarin, the visiting French official in charge of monitoring French partnership projects in Algeria.

"I think, hereafter, about a new impetus to our bilateral relations which is to be confirmed during the summit between the two presidents," Rahmani was quoted as saying by the official APS news agency.

"We are at a turning point in our bilateral relations, within a changing world and emerging crisis, as we are called to get our economies and policies closer and convergent," he said.

"We've decided to build our economy relations on substance, on real and tangible basis," Rahmani said, adding that the two countries have identified the potential economic sectors of cooperation, including the car industry, petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, construction materials and food industry.

For his part, Raffarin indicated that he had initiated several projects with Rahmani, as a prelude to Hollande's forthcoming visit.
