Key Highlights
-The service sector had a significant impact on the economy. In 2014, it accounted for 31.3% of real GDP and strengthened its competition at both the national and international level.

- The industry is dominated by the non-life segment, with a gross written premium share of 79.0% in 2015.

- The National Security Committee introduced a social security scheme in October 2015, to cover all private sector employees.

- A high unemployment rate can be found among the working age group (15–29 years) – especially university graduates – due to a skill mismatch among employees and employers.

- The country’s small population is expected to be a challenge for the industry. Factors such as a lack of a competitive environment, political crisis, a weak regulatory framework and poor levels of public awareness and financial education among the rural and semi-urban populations will also limit this demand.
