1,000 Iranians Employed Overseas Since March 2016

Around 1,000 workers have found employment overseas since the beginning of the current Iranian year (March 2016), according to Mohammad Akbarnia with the Ministry of Cooperatives, Labor and Social Welfare.
“Most of these workers were sent to Turkey, Germany and Australia. There are also plans to send Iranian workforce to Ireland,” the official was quoted as saying by Eghtesad Online.
According to Akbarnia, currently 80 recruitment centers are operating in Iran.
Iran’s deputy labor minister, Mohammad Amin Sazegarnejad, and Ireland’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade’s first secretary for Middle East affairs, Stephen Dawson, signed a memorandum of understanding in Ireland, based on which 3,500 Iranian skilled workers are to be sent to Ireland to work in hospitality and culinary fields, IRNA reported in late September.  
This is while people who enter the job market in Iran heavily outnumber the jobs created by the government.
According to senior presidential advisor, Masoud Nili, the government of President Hassan Rouhani is among the world’s top five in generating an annual average of 704,000 jobs.
“But this extraordinary achievement has gone unnoticed because of the sharp rise in the number of job-seekers,” he said.
The Statistical Center of Iran put Iran’s unemployment rate in summer at 12.7%. The figure registers a 1.8% increase compared with last summer and a 0.5% rise compared with the previous quarter (March 20-June 20, 2016).
The new data show 3.33 million Iranians were unemployed in the second quarter. It also shows 10.4% of men and 21.8% of women of ages 10 and above were jobless during the period.
Men’s and women’s economic participation rates were 64.9% and 15.9% respectively in the second quarter.
The youth unemployment rate, i.e. the proportion of the population between the ages of 15 and 29, stood at 26.7% in summer, registering a 3.3% rise compared with the same period of last year and a 1.8% increase over the last quarter.
Nili has put the unemployment rate of graduates at 41%.
