Experts say that among factors contributing to the drop, from 10.3 percent in February, were early Easter holidays this year and an increase in employment in sectors such as construction and tourism.
Commenting on the latest data from Poland’s Central Statistical Office, Elżbieta Rafalska, the Family, Work and Social Policy Minister, said: “I think that in April the unemployment rate will be below 10 percent and so we will have a single-digit figure."
In March 2015, the unemployment rate stood at 11.7 per cent. (pk)
