The number of Nepali workers leaving for foreign employment tumbled by 17 percent during the first eight months of this fiscal year as compared to the same period last year.

The Department of Foreign Employment (DoFE) revealed that the number of Nepali workers flying for overseas employment during the period stood at 126,812 over 152,682 registered previously.

The growing retrenchment being resorted to by major destination countries of Nepali workers to cope up with the global economic crisis is ascribed to this downward spiral.
