Recent numbers reported that Euro zone employment levels are once again rising which in turn is adding further hope that EU recovery is well underway. Figures released by the EU statistics office show that the 18 countries in the Eurozone reported a marginal increase of 0.1 percent quarter on quarter in the 3 months to March which is also a growth rate of 0.2% up for the year.

Within  Germany specifically , the euro zone  employment numbers demonstrated a slightly larger increase of  0.3 percent on the quarter and 0.8 percent on the year.

Other countries however such as Portugal are unfortunatley still showing negative trends in terms of the labour markets.

Troubled Greece as also slowed its annual fall to 0.5 percent from 2.6 percent in the last quarter of 2013 which again is giving some additional signs of condifence that the worst may well be behind them.

Amid the good news and talk of recovery the other side is that there are still some 18 million people in the region who are without employment- a figure that governments are working what seems like tirelessly to reduce.

Separately, data showed that net trade made a positive contribution to growth in April as the trade surplus increased to 15.7 billion euros ($21.38 billion), from 14.0 billion in the same period of 2013.

The past financial crisis that many economies all over the world experienced prompted a renewed interest in the role and importance of auditing. The future of auditing will therefore be closely tied to the continuous ripples of effects that the world is still experiencing due to the financial crisis. However, it is to be expected that this industry would continue to grow in prevalence in the business world.

Now, more and more companies are realising that the audit and assurance professions are vital to an organisation. In fact, many companies who, in the past, did not conduct audits now find the need to do so. They are realising the need to go back to the basic management principles so they can identify problematic management practices and rectify them; audit plays a key role in this as only a true and effective audit can conduct effective fraud detection and risk management procedures within a company. Firms are thus advised to staff an internal audit department or to outsource audit work to specialist providers just to meet its auditing requirements.
