Unemployment rates in Bulgaria have recorded a slight decrease in June, according to the National Employment Agency.

A total of 10.7% of Bulgarians were unemployed in June which is some 0.5 percent less than the levels recorded in May.

In June, the unemployment rates marked the most dramatic decline since 2004 - some 16,000 fewer unemployed.

However, more than 350 000 job seekers have been registered in the public employment offices countrywide as opposed to only 6000 job vacancies, Nova TV informs.
