Over 2,000 vacancies were offered by employers – private companies and public institutions – during a job fair held in Balti, Moldova.
The event was organised by the National Agency for Employment (ANOFM), the Employment Office of Balti municipality, in partnership with the ‘Mayors for Economic Growth’ initiative funded by the European Union and implemented by UNDP.
More than 300 men and women took part in the fair, including refugees from Ukraine who are looking for work or want to retrain.
“Increasing employment and ensuring decent work for all are important aspects of sustainable development. The European Union offers continued support to the Republic of Moldova in creating decent jobs through various programmes aimed at strengthening the capacity of public institutions, as well as developing local businesses. Decent jobs help reduce inequality and poverty,” said Aurica Butnari, Programme Manager of the EU Delegation to the Republic of Moldova.
