Some 2,000 persons have been successfully placed in employment through the Ministry of Labour and Social Security’s Labour Market Information System (LMIS) since 2013, when the website was enhanced and redeployed.

Additionally, more than 3,700 vacancies were identified and 6,000 individuals referred for employment.

Through the LMIS, employers can post job openings and search for matching candidates, while jobseekers can post résumés and apply for jobs online.

The LMIS also provides a comprehensive database with indicators on the economy, the labour force, employment levels, educational levels of persons in the labour force, education and training, and the emergence and contraction of industries and sectors within the economy.
