Belaid Abdessalam (Arabic: بلعيد عبد السلام‎) (born July 1928 in Ain Kebir) is an Algerian politician. He was a nationalist leader in the FLN during Algeria's struggle for independence from France. He was minister of industry and power under the military regime of Houari Boumedienne, and his name is closely connected with the former Algerian state policy of building a base of heavy industry through planned economy.

Abdessalam served as Prime Minister of Algeria from July 8, 1992 until August 21, 1993. During his tenure, the Algerian government intensified its conflicts with Islamist rebels, and because of this he eventually resigned.
