The Economy, Energy, and Business Environment Ministry, through its Tourism Department, has launched a campaign promoting local jobs to Romanians who recently returned to the country or are planning to do so. The campaign focuses on hospitality industry jobs, according to Romania-Insider.com.
The authorities say the message they want to get across is a simple one – “We are expecting you home!. We have jobs for you, especially in the HoReCa sector,” a press release from the Economy Ministry says.
“Over the past few years, our country showed it is increasingly interesting to investors. In January, I attended a conference where the main topic was the labor shortage in the hospitality industry. I was saying at the time that we were worried it would become a worse crisis than a potential economic one […] In the meantime, the coronavirus pandemic altered all plans radically. One thing still stands: the labor shortage,” Emil-Răzvan Pîrjol, a state secretary with the Economy Ministry, explains.
