Slovakia's unemployment rate fell to 5.1% in May from 5.3% in April, returning to pre-crisis levels, economics portal Trading Economics reported citing data released by the Ministry of Labor, Social, Affairs and Family (ÚpsVar).

According to the report, the overall unemployment has fallen in all regions, as well as in the 15 districts with the highest rates, and is expected to continue easing due to the summer season of work in agriculture, construction, and tourism.

Meanwhile, the number of jobless decreased by 29,138 over the previous year to an over 4-year low of 142,309.
