Greek PM reveals unemployment targets

Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis participated in a discussion held during the 14th Career Days event organized by the Public Employment Service (DYPA) in Athens on Sunday.

He stated that “there are a great many subsidized job positions that are going to be announced over the next period, nearly 200,000, with significant financing from the Recovery Fund and from the new NSRF. Our goal is to lower unemployment to below 10% some time in 2024. I consider that this is a target that is absolutely feasible and DYPA has, I think, a significant role to play in this effort.”

He added that “the next big front we shall have to deal with in the labor market concerns two aspects: The first is how to cover the needs in rapidly growing sectors, such as tourism, where we see there is a big problem finding staff. And this, possibly, has to do with the second great challenge, which is the retraining and acquisition of additional skills in a job market that is constantly changing.”
