Agriculture, the maritime industry and tourism are important sectors of the Greek economy, which recovers slowly from long and deep recession. The country has still the highest unemployment rate in the EU and size of employed workforce decreased by almost 10% in just last five years.
The forecast paints more optimistic future for Greece, with decent employment growth, driven by health & social care, ICT services and construction. Sales workers and health care occupations are predicted to grow substantially till 2030. Although most job openings (including replacements for vacated jobs) till 2030 will be for high- or medium-level qualifications, decent job opportunities will be available for low-skilled people, too.
