Labour market has seen “spectacular improvement" - EU

Portugal’s labour market has seen a “spectacular improvement,” the European Union economics commissioner said, stressing that it was in the country’s interest to continue implementing reforms.

“There was a spectacular improvement in terms of unemployment, which dropped below the European average in July to 6.8%,” Pierre Moscovici told journalists at the end of a meeting of eurozone ministers in Vienna.

He added that Portugal’s government should focus on improving the qualification levels of its citizens and on making the job market more inclusive.

Just like its fellow eurozone countries, Portugal is expected to submit its draft budget for next year by mid-October.
