"After a good year on the domestic labor market, all in all, we go into the coming months with mixed feelings. The year that has ended has clearly shown us that we must say goodbye to long periods of growth", explained eugen hain, chairman of the management of the wurzburg employment agency. The "up and down, or, as the economy puts it, "volatility" on the markets, will probably be our constant companion in the future.
But there's no point in painting the devil on the wall: "even in a worst-case scenario, we'll still be able to cope better than many other regions have been able to get by, i have to say. The excellent mix of industries in the region is a guarantee for this."
