“In Portugal, at the moment, we are experiencing a somewhat comfortable situation, because the unemployment rate is at historically low levels. We are practically in a situation of full employment, and in the region, not only in Coimbra, but in the entire Central region, this situation is even more visible", he said.

The chairman of the board of directors of the IEFP, Domingos Lopes, underlined that full employment is more visible in the Central region, where "there is practically no unemployment".

“There is, in fact, a lack of manpower for the needs that companies have. But this is a good situation”.
