Eight pilot social companies created 208 jobs and trained 489 jobseekers to meet requirements of the labour market as of mid-May of this year, according to a report presented to the cabinet on June 17.

The report predicts that social companies will ultimately generate 1,981 new jobs and re-qualify 5,101 jobseekers, the SITA newswire wrote.

The pilot social companies project was launched on July 1, 2008. The Labour Ministry reported that advance payments totalling €5,352,718.83 have been provided to social companies to date, representing 22.5 percent of the total volume of approved non-refundable financial contributions for this purpose.

An additional 21 social companies have since been established in line with the law on employment services. As of June 11, of this year labour offices concluded five agreements with them to create and sustain 70 jobs.
