Based on the latest data, nearly 4.8 million people are employed in Hungary, and the unemployment rate stands at 3.8 per cent, well below the EU average. The data reflects that the Hungarian labour market remains tight, and employment is in good condition, State Secretary Sándor Czomba stated.
Since 2010, the government has been working towards achieving full employment and building a labour-based economy. Compared to 2010, one million more people are now employed in Hungary, and the number of those employed is steadily approaching 4.8 million.
The CEO of BNP Paribas Cardif, Márk István Kiss, noted in the press release presenting the results of the survey that the rising prices and the challenging economic situation have not significantly impacted labour market processes, and the mood of Hungarian employees seems to be stabilising overall.
According to data shared by the Ministry of Economic Development, this is the most favourable February data ever, with the number of job seekers decreasing by an additional 7,000 compared to the same level a year earlier.
