Switzerland lifts labour market restrictions for Bulgaria, Romanie

Sofia News Agency

Switzerland's government has decided to gradually lift labour restrictions on Bulgarians and Romanians, Sofia News Agency reports. However, the new measures will not provide Bulgarian and Romanian job seekers with unfettered access to Switzerland's labour market and their stay in the country will also be limited.

At the beginning of May, Swiss authorities decided to make it easier for western Europeans to work in the federation, expanding the reach of regulations first introduced in 2002.

A similar plan to gradually lift restrictions by 2011 is in place for the Eastern European countries that joined the EU in 2004.
