Kathmandu, July 8
Mauritius has proposed the Kathmandu government to officially take Nepali workers to the East African country for job opportunities.
Mauritius has shared a draft for the memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Ministry of Labour, Employment and Social Security stating that the country could provide suitable job opportunities to Nepalis.
Nepalis have been personally opting for employment in Mauritius as labor demands from their previously favourate destinations–Malaysia and Saudi Arabia–are decreasing of late.
With an aim to address the problem, the government has also been trying to open doors for employment in other countries as well.
According to sources at the Ministry, everything will be finalised after studying Mauritius’s economy, labour laws, environment, and the minimum wage.
Likewise, discussions on providing more jobs for Nepalis in Canada and Portugal have also started, informed high-level officials at the Ministry.
