135.000 new jobs in the Netherlands

UWV's new labour market prognosis reveals that there will be 135.000 new jobs in the Netherlands at the end of 2012.

More specifically
 Number of unemployed is expected to drop from 475.000 today to 430.000 at the end of 2012.
 UWV expects 67.000 and 68.000 new jobs in 2011 and 2012 respectively.
 Even though the number of vacancies is expected to rise, it is still far from the one before the crisis.

UWV is a governmental organisation commissioned by the Ministry of Social Affairs and Employment (SZW).
