THE EMPLOYMENT rate in Slovakia among people aged 20-64 rose from 63.2 percent in 2002 to 65 percent in 2013, but lagged behind the EU average of 68.3 percent, the SITA newswire reported, citing data from the European Union's Eurostat.
Slovakia aims to increase the employment rate to 72 percent within the Europe 2020 strategy, while the target for the whole EU is to boost the employment rate to 75 percent.
In the 20 to 64-year-old group Sweden reported the highest employment rate, 79.8 percent, followed by Germany with 77.1 percent and the Netherlands with 76.5 percent. On the other hand, Greece had the lowest employment rate, 53.2 percent, followed by Croatia with 53.9 percent and Spain with 58.2 percent.
