A standard study was conducted to investigated the nature of the relationship and to determine the role of the Algerian banking system in promoting the economic activity during the period (1990 – 2014) relying on a set of tests, including the test of cointegration of variables, and vector error-correction model. In addition to Granger’s causality, using only the financial variables, and then applying the model using macro variables (financial and real variables) as to identify the most influential factors on economic growth.
