In a message to the Algerian workers, on the occasion of International Workers' Day, celebrated on May 1 of each year, the President of the Republic said that "our country is called today to restore true value to work, by exerting every effort, mobilizing and letting our capacities and our sense of creativity grow in order to make a qualitative leap in terms of multidimensional development."
Tebboune also addressed his greetings and gratitude to the Algerian workers "for their efforts in the battle for development, following the path of their predecessors who led the battle for liberation and building and regained the national sovereignty over our natural resources."
"I pay tribute to all those who fought these noble national battles, as well as the Shouhada of national duty during the dark decade (of terrorism), especially secretary general of the Algerian Union’s late Abdelhak Benhamouda, (assassinated by terrorists during the 1990s,", wrote the President of the Republic in his message.
Tebboune recalled that "Algeria needs so much to adopt the way of Knowledge, work and good practices, the only and unique means to achieve progress, independence and stability, and to curb unemployment which is the enemy of stability and the source of social ills."
The Head of the State also invited workers' organizations to "support this orientation and play an influential role in building a productive economy which creates wealth and jobs".
"Even if all our attention has been focused, lately, on the preservation of the life and health of the citizens, because of the
spread of the novel Coronavirus, I would like to reaffirm my commitment to resolving all pending litigation, canceling the tax on small incomes and preserving social gains, "said President Tebboune.
