Nepalis prefer South Korea to the Gulf for employment

Proof: Just see the number of people lined up to submit application for Korean language test. Nepali workers get better facilities and salary in South Korea than in the Gulf. South Korea is taking 7100 Nepalis this year under its EPS program, which takes in workers from about 15 countries. Remittances have been the backbone of the Nepali economy. It amounts to almost 23 percent of GDP.
