Employment Is At An All-Time High - PM
It can be said that employment is at an all-time high and unemployment is at an all-time low, - the Prime Minister of Georgia, Irakli Garibashvili, said before the start of the government session.
According to him, the poverty rate has also decreased and has reached a historical minimum.
"The number of jobs increased in the first quarter, 42 thousand more jobs were created in the first quarter and amounted to 716 thousand, which is a record high number of employees in the business sector in the first quarter. This is very good information.
In other words, employment is at an all-time high and unemployment is at an all-time low. Also, poverty has been reduced and is at a historical low. For comparison, I would like to note here that the unemployment rate was 27% in 2010, and now it is 17%. Such a big progress in 10 years", said Garibashvili.
