Employment in Europe 

The European Commission has launched an employment package in response to the slowing European economies on account of isolated crises in EU member states.  The Commission initiative contains a set of general and specific sector recommendations to both create jobs and help workers find jobs.  They include measures to cut tax on labour, assistance with business start-ups, as well as the promotion of the green economy, health services and ICT.  The Commission has declared that implementing their recommendations would help 75% of the EU’s citizens aged from 20-64 find work by 2020.

Malta has reported healthy economic results of late.  Progress has followed closely the recommendations of the Commission.  This has created many employment opportunities.  According to a report by the Times of Malta, more than 20,000 jobs were created in Malta over the last four years.
