This agreement is not expected to be fully ratified before 2005 at the earliest.
Only seven of the older member states had ratified the Algeria-EU
association accord/agreement by the time of EU enlargement in May, and
now the new members must also be involved in the ratification process.
Algeria itself has not yet signed, either.
"DELAY IN RATIFYING THE ALGERIA-EU ASSOCIATION AGREEMENT
(Quotidien d?Oran 28 Apr)
The Head of the European Commission in Algiers, Lucio Guerrato, said
that only seven countries had ratified the EU-Algeria Association
Agreement (France, Germany, Ireland, Sweden, Austria, Belgium and
Great Britain), and as from 1 May the ten new entrants to the EU
should also ratify it, but is difficult to see how this can be done
rapidly. He was nevertheless optimistic that all 25 countries would
sign by early 2005."

agreements with their neighbours work out:
