Ukraine's Prime Minister Oleksiy Honcharuk says his government will create 200,000 jobs this year and there will be one million legal job openings in five years.
"Our government's goal for the year 2020 is plus 200,000 new legal jobs and time to be spent on searching a job will be reduced from 3.6 to 2 months on the average," he said on Facebook on February 17. "In five years, there will be 1 million [new] jobs."
As UNIAN reported earlier, the government launched a campaign to bring the labor market out of the shadows in order to provide Ukrainians with civilized working conditions.
To this end, awareness campaigns and inspections will be conducted in such sectors as agriculture, construction, transport and courier services.
