Unemployment rate hits 6.9% in 2012 last quarter

President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner announced that the unemployment rate has dropped in the last quarter of 2012 to 6.9 percent, 0.7 points lower than the level registered in the previous quarter, and that the economy has grown 1.8 percent, "despite the severe international crisis."

The Head of State assured that by the end of 2012 "the unemployment rate hit 6.9 percent, we've lowered it from the 7.6 percent announced in the third quarter."

This rate is close to "the minimum we had reached back in 2010, during a growth period, in which it had hit 6.7 percent," she continued.

"This was achieved because there's a State the allows consumption, investment, maintains jobs, and the demand, because we can't leave this situation with less State, but with more and better State," Fernández de Kirchner affirmed.
