The specificity of the capital employment center is that we have registered 82% of people with complete higher education, no other administrative region has such a rate. Of this amount, the first place is taken by accounting experts, followed by engineers and lawyers. These people can be further prepared with our help according to the specific requirements of employers," the official noted.

The consolidated work of all these parties will reduce unemployment in the capital as well as in the whole country," he added.
