Unemployment edges up in Latvia

Dec 12, 2013
From wire reports, RIGA

Unemployment in Latvia during November increased to 9.3 percent, the State Employment Agency reports.

The new figures show an increase of 0.2 percent when compared to October, where the registered unemployment rate was 9.1 percent.

The highest unemployment rate was recorded in the Latgale Province at 18.7 percent, whilst the lowest unemployment rate was registered in Riga and the surrounding region - six percent.

Due to mass layoffs at the financially troubled metallurgical company Liepajas Metalurgs, the Kurzeme Province saw the largest increase in unemployment last month - by 1.2 percent to 11 percent.

Currently the largest number of vacancies is in manufacturing and construction sectors, the State Employment Agency informs.
