ALGIERS- Algeria must reach its autonomy in terms of mastering new technologies in order to accompany its economic development, said Thursday Manager of the Centre for Advanced Technologies Development (CDTA), Yacine Djeridene.
It is necessary to "acquire knowledge and master the digital economy to boost the national development," Djeridene told the national radio. "Importing turnkey equipments can’t be helpful to master the new technologies, notably in the absence of national development programmes."
In this regard, he mentioned the CDTA development programme to contribute to the development of knowledge and its transformation into expertise and into products necessary to the socio-economic development.
He announced that the Centre for Advanced Technologies Development created a platform of e-maintenance in the benefit of Air Algérie airliner, which allows identifying breakdowns that may happen in its planes.
"With such technology, we can, with a tablet connected to the internet, to guide a technician to identify technical problems in an aircraft in any place in the world," Djeridene said.
