Through the conversations during the fair, we have found out what are the major difficulties that municipal bureaus must remove, so that any unemployed person who is in our bases would not miss a chance that is offered, especially in big business circles as Koksara Lukavac. We see that the interest of the people is great and we are pleased that this cooperation is much better every day - said Miralem Softic, head of Sector for mediation in employment and social security to the unemployed.
