41,957! This is the number of foreigners who hold a valid work permit in Mauritius. There are just over 16,000 Indians, 11,000 Bangladeshis, 7,875 Nepalese and 6,000 Malagasy. This information was communicated to us by the Ministry of Labour and the update dates from last May.

Most foreign workers are employed in manufacturing, textiles, construction and agriculture, while others work in the public sector and the medical field.

Speaking on RadioPlus this Thursday afternoon, July 4, Reaz Chuttoo points out that the market is mainly looking for Nepalese labor. A figure that could increase by next year, explains the CTSP unionist.
