Czech unemployment falls to 3.7 percent

Unemployment in Czechia fell month-on-month by 0.2 percentage points to 3.7 percent in April, according to data released by the national Labour Office on Friday.

At the end of last month some 280,000 people in the country were out of work. The number of vacant positions dropped slightly, reaching just over 268,000. The decrease was mainly due to the start of seasonal work.
