Deputy Prime Minister Tatyana Golikova held a regular meeting of the interdepartmental working group to respond to the situation developing on the labor market.

“According to Rosstat, in February of this year the unemployment rate decreased and is 2.8%. This is the lowest figure since 1992,” noted Tatyana Golikova. “The number of supply in the labor market is narrowing, so working to correct structural imbalances and train the appropriately qualified workforce is extremely important.”

At the meeting, they discussed the readiness to hold the regional stage of the All-Russian Employment Fair “Russian Jobs. Time of opportunity.”

“The job fair has proven itself to be an effective tool for both career guidance and employment of applicants, and for the selection of necessary personnel for enterprises. In 2023, based on the results of the regional and federal stages of the All-Russian fair, over 120 thousand people were employed,” emphasized Tatyana Golikova.

The federal stage of the All-Russian Employment Fair will take place on June 28, 2024, and the regional stage will take place in April.

“This year the event is being held on behalf of the President of Russia and is becoming an annual event for the entire country. The regional stage of the fair will take place on a single day – April 12. At the same time, in a number of regions, events will continue on weekends or will begin several days earlier,” noted the head of the Ministry of Labor Anton Kotyakov.

Each region will present its own program taking into account the needs of the local labor market: applicants will be offered the most attractive vacancies, opportunities for retraining and relocation support, and visits to individual production facilities. Information about the main events for each region with site addresses and contacts will be posted on the Work of Russia portal.

In addition, at the meeting they discussed a draft “road map” until 2030 to correct current trends in the labor market of the Trans-Baikal Territory, a report on finalizing the draft “road maps” of the Republic of Kalmykia and the Chechen Republic.

The activities of the road map project for the Trans-Baikal Territory provide for reducing the overall unemployment rate according to the ILO methodology to 3.9%, creating about 37 thousand new jobs. It is planned to increase the employment rate of college graduates to 78%, according to the federal project “Professionalism” – to 85%, and for university graduates – to 89%.

The project contains measures to forecast and analyze the situation in the regional labor market, quarterly frequency of achieving target indicators in 2024 and measures to assist unemployed citizens and job seekers in finding employment outside the Trans-Baikal Territory, which is labor surplus. The project also includes measures to promote the employment of citizens who have difficulty finding work, including disabled people and military veterans.

The draft “road map” provides for measures for vocational training and retraining of unemployed citizens for such industries as mining, energy, construction, agriculture, transport and logistics, which are in demand in the regional labor market. There are also mentoring and support activities for college and university graduates.

Based on the results of consideration of the draft “road map”, the government of the Trans-Baikal Territory was instructed to clarify the values of target indicators for the involvement of employers in personnel training activities, the formation of a reserve of teaching staff from among graduates of secondary vocational education institutions, as well as the involvement of enterprise employees in the implementation of secondary vocational education programs.

As a result of the meeting, the draft “road map” until 2030 to correct current trends in the labor market of the Trans-Baikal Territory was accepted as a basis and sent for revision.

The draft “road maps” of the Republic of Kalmykia and the Chechen Republic, which were previously considered by the interdepartmental working group, were finalized taking into account comments and approved. Regional governments have been instructed to begin implementing the road map measures.
