The Bulletin of the Economy for the 4th quarter of 2015, on data collected since 1 January, is available online.
For the first time in several years, the number of jobs fell slightly (-0.7%) in December 2015, while the cumulative number of hours worked over the year rose (+0.9%).
Despite a slight decline (-1%) compared with 2014, the total volume of trade (export + import) has remained very high (€2.2 billion) since 2013.
The Principality’s turnover, excluding Financial and Insurance Activities, fell (-1%) in 2015 compared with 2014, but the good performance seen in the second half of the year (+€367 million compared with 2014) helped to make up a large part of the decline experienced in the first six months (-€470 million).
