When it comes to foreigners from Asian countries, the number of Korean employees is the highest (872), while the number of Vietnamese and Chinese employees is around 600 in total, the TASR newswire reported, citing the ÚPSVaR statistics. Slovakia has also attracted some people from more far-flung countries, including one person each from Venezuela, Zambia, Equatorial Guinea, Namibia and Mauritius. According to October's statistics, there were 21,031 foreigners on the Slovak labour market, while the overall number of employed Slovaks was about 2.4 million. Thus, one job in every 112 in Slovakia was occupied by a non-Slovak.
