In the last two decades, the Algerian government has shown a remarkable interest for public-private partnership (PPP) projects. This paper aims to highlight Joint Venture (JV) arrangements in the context of PPP mechanism operating in the mechanical industry, urban transport, pharmaceutical and gas production sectors. Face-to-face semi structured interviews with practitioners from the public sector were conducted. The results show that despite the instability of the political, financial, regulatory and market situation, most of the JV has recorded positive results regarding technology and know-how transfer or even the ability to penetrate the international markets through exports. Because of the different perception of PPP arrangements in the view of public and private practitioners, more research should be conducted to further investigate the point of view of the private actors. It should be noted also that through this article we intend to conduct qualitative approach, in depth quantitative study evaluating the critical success factors of more Joint Ventures might be subject of a separate article.
