Sept. 4 (Bloomberg) -- Renault SA and Algeria will sign a shareholders pact in mid-September as part of a plan to build a factory in the country, Les Echos said, citing Mohamed Benmeradi, Algeria’s industry minister.

The plant will be 51 percent-owned by Algeria’s national investment fund and the Societe Nationale des Vehicules Industriels, and 49 percent-owned by Renault, the newspaper said. Algeria has proposed locating the plant in Oued Tlelat, near the city of Oran, the newspaper reported.
