Romania’s 2013 employment rate among lowest in EU

Romania had one of the lowest employment rates in the European Union in 2013, within the 20 to 64 years old tier; it stood at 63.9 percent, below the EU average of 68.3 percent, according to data released on Monday by the Statistical Office of the European Union (Eurostat). However, while the unemployment rate was above 25 percent in December 2013 in Greece and Spain, Romania had one of the lowest unemployment levels in Europe, only 7.1 percent. The goal of the Europe 2020 strategy is to increase to at least 75 percent the employment rate among the population aged 20 to 64 of the 28 EU member states, by 2020.
