  • [01] Austerity alone is not enough, speakers at ILO meeting say

    Austerity measures alone are not enough to tackle the financial crisis in some European countries, but should be followed by measures targeting growth, speakers at the 9th European Regional Meeting of the International Labour Organization in Oslo have said.

    The meeting, which is held every four years, is also attended by the Cyprus government and the social partners.

    According to an official announcement, the ILO meeting focuses on growth and job creation, as well as on the promotion of social dialogue as a means to reaching acceptable policies to constrain youth unemployment.

    The rate of inflation for March 2013 decreased to 1.3% compared to 1.8% in February 2013 and 3.5% in March 2012.

    According to the Statistical Service of the Republic of Cyprus, the highest rate of inflation (8.7%) was marked in the category alcoholic beverages and tobacco. On the other hand, Health, clothing and footwear and restaurants and hotels marked in March negative rate of inflation.
