Eurostat: Employment in Cyprus Rises by 0.8%

The number of persons employed increased by 0.4% in both the euro area (EA19) and the EU28 and by 0.8% in Cyprus, in the first quarter of 2018 compared with the previous quarter, according to national accounts estimates published by Eurostat, the statistical office of the European Union.

In the fourth quarter of 2017, employment increased by 0.3% in the euro area, by 0.2% in the EU28 and by 0.9% in Cyprus, the Cyprus News Agency reports.

Compared with the same quarter of the previous year, employment increased by 1.4% in both the euro area and the EU28 and by 4.0% in Cyprus in the first quarter of 2018 (after +1.6%,  +1.5% and 3.7% respectively in the fourth quarter of 2017).
