Infographic: Labour Market 2017

For the year of 2017 as a whole, total employment declined as foreign employment continued to contract, mainly due to a decrease in work permit holders in construction and marine shipyard. Local employment increased, with growth nearly doubled that in 2016. Retrenchments declined for both locals and foreigners. Among residents, the annual average long-term unemployment rate and re-entry rate held steady between 2016 and 2017.
