The French embassy in Prague and France’s government agency in support of employment have launched a campaign offering French people to seek jobs in the Czech Republic where hundreds of French firms operate.
The campaign has been recently highlighted by the Le Parisien daily.
The seminar is been organized on the outskirts of Paris and its main goal is convincing French unemployed to move to the Czech Republic.
The joint campaign underlines growing desperation at President Macron’s failure to bring about a significant reduction in unemployment, which stands at 9.1 percent.
Potential applicants can find information about the life and work in the Czech Republic on the websites of the embassy and the Work in Czechia campaign, which describe the beauties of the country and say that over 4,200 French have settled there so far.
According to data released by Eurostat, the Czech Republic has the highest job vacancy rate in the EU (5.4% in the second quarter of 2018), the lowest unemployment rate in Europe (3.1% in August), and Prague had an unemployment rate of 1.7% in 2017.
