ASPECTS REGARDING THE LABOUR MARKET IN ROMANIA’S NORTH-WEST REGION PUBLISHEDManuela Dora Orboi
In the North-West Region, the significant economic growth of the past decade was not followed by better employment rate, although labour productivity improved. Also the number of employment opportunities has decreased constantly, reducing the share of the active population and especially the employed population within the whole population. The statistical data on the labour market puts the North-West Region in an unfavourable position compared to UE25; however this is a balanced position in relation to the national average. Both on the national and regional level, the labour market is characterised by inflexibility, delayed reactions, reduced adaptability to the dynamics of the economy, the inability to create new job opportunities mainly in branches with high added value.
