On labor market, the government repeated that employment situation shows steady movements in some components such as job offers, while weakness remains, due to the influence of the infectious disease.

Regarding short-term prospects, the government said the economy is expected to show movements of picking up, supported by the effects of the policies and improvement in overseas economies while taking measures to prevent the spread of infectious diseases, and accelerating vaccinations.
