Unemployment continued to decline in our country in October 2019. The unemployment rate stood at 16.6%, compared to 18.5% in October 2018 and 16.8% in September 2019.

Labor Minister Yiannis Vroutsis said that ELSTAT’s data on the continued decline of unemployment as well as ERGANIS’s data on increased overall employment, reflect steady improvement in the labor market, because of positive expectations and the new reforms the government is implementing gradually, responsibly and decisively in the economy and the labor market.
