Iasi, Mures and Cluj counties in northeastern, central and northwestern Romania, respectively, are leading by far in terms of top layoffs estimated by officials of the Ministry of Labor for the coming two months. According to data provided by the National Agency for Employment (ANOFM), almost half of the more than 17,700 future unemployed will come from the three aforementioned counties.

This same source indicated that three quarters of the layoffs will come from private capital companies and 20 percent from state companies. Fields in which employers have so far announced or requested information about layoff regulations are automotive and equipment production, construction, wood processing and furniture manufacturing, the textile industry, and agriculture. 

Some 2,000 employees will lose their jobs in car and equipment factories, over 1,500 in the construction sector, more than 900 in the wood industry, and over 800 in textile factories. According to ANOFM data, the layoff wave forecast for the coming two months will exceed the number of layoffs made in the first half of the year in the entire economy.
