    Background: Thee years after the Algerian agricultural reform law was passed, National Peasants' Union (UNPA) held its first Congress in Algiers Tuesday (26 November).

    President Houari Boumedienne spoke at the meeting which was attended b??? about 1,000 delegates from various parts of the country. The union has about 750,000 members.

    The Algerian Government passed the agrarian law to distribute land to tenant farmers and to limit private property.

    The first phase saw the distribution of 700,000 hectares (over 1.7 million acres) of publicly-owned land to 50,000 landless peasants grouped into, 3,000 co-operatives.

    This was followed by phase two -- nationalisation of land owned by ???sentee landlords -- which is due to end later this year. Under this chase, nearly 290,000 hectares (about 700,000 acres) were given to thousands of small farmers.

    The agarian law was passed to improve the living conditions in us countryside where most of Algeria's 15 million inhabitants live.
