"Chinese built towers" Annaba Local Custom Tip by JLBG

Annaba Local Customs: 10 reviews and 14 photos

  Chinese built towers

In order to improve the lodging situation and as local builders do not work fast enough, the government has, in several cities of the country, including Annaba, hired Chinese companies. They come with their own workers. They have their own lodging for their workers and everything is arranged so they cannot mix with the local population. They work seven days per week and from dawn till dusk. Buildings, such as these, grow as fast as mushrooms but recently these guys have, in several places in Algeria, made demonstrations, rallies and even gone to strike because of the hard conditions they were submitted.
