Basic infrastructure in Algeria is in line with the size of the country, and so are its deficiencies. Its development will be an asset for the economy.
Hi, everyone!
I wonder how to udnerstand the word "asset" in this sentence.

It means "the development of basic infrastructure will be contribute the economy"?

Can you give me a more exact explainantion?

    Yes, it means that its development will be a contribution to the economy. (OR: will contribute to the economy.)

    I would expect "be an asset to the economy", but I don't think for is wrong.
