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.
