GOVT OFFICIAL: POSITIVE JOB MARKET TRENDS CONTINUING IN 2019

 

Fully, 785,000 more people work in Hungary at present than in 2010 and 662,000 work in the primary labour market, Zoltán Istvan Marczinkó, deputy state secretary for labour at the finance ministry, said in an interview to public television, commenting on the Central Statistical Office’s (KSH) latest jobs report. Marczinkó said positive trends in employment were expected in 2019, too, thanks to a robust economic environment and government measures such as the cut in the corporate tax rate to 9%. Whereas the number of employees dropped by a few thousand from a month earlier, this would not affect the trend of employment growth over the longer horizon, he added.
