Seoul - Xinhua

South Korea\'s jobless rate dropped to 2.9 percent in October as the number of people employed grew at the fastest pace in 17 months, a government report showed Wednesday. The unemployment rate stood at 2.9 percent in October, down 0.4 percentage point from the same month of last year, the Statistics Korea said in a monthly report.

The number of unemployed, who failed to land work despite job- hunting efforts, decreased to 736,000 last month from 832,000 a year before. \"Accelerated job creation, mainly driven by the service industry, led the number of unemployed to contract sharply, dragging down the jobless rate,\" the statistical agency said.

The total number of working people reached 24.67 million in October, up 501,000 from a year earlier. The employment rate rose 0.5 percentage point on-year to 59.9 percent last month. The October job growth marked the largest since May 2010 when the number of people finding jobs increased by 586,000.
