Taiwan's Jobless Rate Falls in April

A decline in Taiwan's jobless rate from March to April suggests that the country's economic recovery is fueling demand for additional workforce, says the China Post.

 

Citing the Directorate General of Budget, Accounting and Statistics (DGBAS), the Post notes that the decline of 0.28 of a percentage point from March to reach 5.39% in April is the biggest single-month fall in 15 years.

 

The Post says Taiwan employed population reached a total of 10.414 million in April, an increase of 30,000 over March. The manufacturing sector hired a total of 25,000 employees, and the construction segment recruited 11,000 employees.
