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.
