The slow economic growth in 2008 adversely affected employed creation. The number of new jobs created by the domestic economy declined from 485.5 thousand jobs in 2007 to 467.3 thousand jobs in 2008. The new jobs created in the modern private sector declined from 74 thousand to 23.8 per cent in 2007 to 26.2 per 2008, record high since that of 28.8 per cent in 1994.
