Unemployment rate in October 2012 stood at 7.3%, a drop of 0.9 percentage points below 8.2% in October 2011, as appears from the monthly report on labor prepared by the Venezuelan National Statistics Institute (INE).

In absolute terms, this accounts for 989,227 jobless. Last year, people out of work amounted to 1,113,631.

Last month, as many as 12,519,285 people had a job, 7,450,427 of which were employed in the formal sector whereas 5,068,858 were in the informal sector.

In a press release, INE president Elías Eljuri extolled a trend towards the consolidation of the sectors, which create most jobs and afford more stability for workers, taking into account the formal-informal labor ratio.

The rock of discord

A shipment of over 30,000 tons of phosphate arrived at Puerto Cabello port in late July on board the Shi Long Ling, a Chinese-flagged vessel that began its long journey in northern Africa. The cargo boat docked on July 26 after traveling more than 3,200 nautical miles. Undoubtedly, this would just be considered one in many cargo ships crisscrossing the oceans if it were not for the fact that Venezuela has denounced Western Sahara occupation by Morocco and yet purchases the territory's natural resource products from the occupying power.
