The Lithuanian authorities began voicing some optimism in their assessment of the Lithuania’s economy. On of them is dropping unemployment figures.  Even though another 6,000 people were registered as unemployed in Lithuania last week, down 6 percent from 6,400 people registered a week earlier, the country’s Labour Exchange said on Monday.

The total number of people with the status of unemployed persons reached 191,000 as of May 22 (up from 189,600 a week earlier), which accounted for 8.9 percent of the working age population, by BNS calculations.

As the BNS informed some 1,488 job vacancies were registered in May 15 through May 22, almost unchanged from 1,481 vacancies a week earlier. Some 2,800 people got employed, unchanged from the previous week.

There were around 1,300 vacancies in the Labour Exchange database on May 22.
