(Adds details)

BUENOS AIRES, Nov 17 (BestGrowthStock) – Argentine unemployment
fell to 7.5 percent in the third quarter due to brisk economic
growth, President Cristina Fernandez said on Wednesday.

Fernandez said earlier this month that the jobless rate in
the third quarter would come in at 7.6 percent, and the
official quarterly unemployment figure is due to be released
next week. [ID:nN05227355]

Unemployment has fallen as Latin America’s No. 3 economy
recovers from the impact of the global economic crisis. The
government foresees growth of about 9 percent in 2010.

Argentina’s jobless rate fell to 7.9 percent in the second
quarter from 8.8 percent in the same period of 2009, the
government’s statistics agency said in August.
