In Portugal, “the activity rate reached its highest level since 2011. Despite this positive evolution, in recent quarters the unemployment rate has slightly increased, reflecting an increase in the number of people looking for a job", the ministry of finance shared on Twitter and reported by NM.

According to the office of Minister Fernando Medina, the "dynamism of the labour market explains these dynamics that result in the highest level of employment on record and an unemployment rate that remains at historically low levels".
