There were 2,184,000 unemployed registered in labour offices in March, down 72,000 from the previous month.

Employers offered 107,000 new jobs in March, 18,000 more compared to March 2013.

In March 2013, the unemployment rate was 14.3 percent.

„It seems that it is a permanent trend reversal and this decline could continue in the following months. (…) Everything indicates that the 13.0 percent level at the end of the year is more and more attainable,” Labour Minister Wladyslaw Kosiniak-Kamysz told a news conference. (PAP)
