Slovenia's unemployment keeps falling with the number of people registered for being out of a job hitting a new low for the fourth month running in June, reported the Slovenia Times.

According to the report, the Employment Service had 46,178 people on the unemployment register at the end of June, 2.1% fewer than the prior month and 14.3% fewer than a year ago.

It is the lowest figure on record since 1990, that is before the country went independent.

In June alone, 4,010 registered as unemployed, which is 0.8% more than in May and 1.5% more than in June last year.

Employers reported 15,804 vacancies in June, 7% more than the month before and 7.9% more year-on-year.

The biggest demand was in education, construction, healthcare, social care and manufacturing sectors.
