The unemployment is below 3% in the city and below 6% in the region
Every month a factory is opened or expanded, and this speaks of a strong dynamics of the economy. The unemployment is below 3% in the city and below 6% for the region, which confronts us with different challenges. The deputy mayor Stefan Stoyanov said at the opening of the National Business Forum “Strong regions for strong economy” at the International Fair Plovdiv, Plovdiv Municipality reports.
According to Stefan Stoyanov, the future of Plovdiv will depend to a great extent on the economic dynamics and the attraction of people to the city. An important fact is that in recent years wage growth is 10%, and more and more companies are starting to invest in education and dual learning.
“We can not have a good education without the business being involved in it, the good models in the world are related to such participation. The opening of the labor market for EU citizens is also a good prospect,” the deputy mayor concluded.
The new economic data shows that in 2015 the business services sector has developed most dynamically, which speaks for greater added value – a good sign that Plovdiv and the region are heading to the right path, part of which are the digitalization, automation and good education.
