Dubai second-best city for expat start-ups worldwide
The UAE is among top 10 countries globally for expats while Dubai is ranked second-best city in the world after Singapore for expats looking to start a business, a survey released on Monday revealed.
A survey by HSBC highlights the UAE’s entrepreneurial environment, job prospects and better salaries as primary factors attracting expats from across the world.
“Despite the volatility in the global economy and insecurity in job markets, the UAE’s diverse business landscape and its position as a hub in the Middle East means that it continues to be an attractive destination for expats from across the world,” the survey report said.
According to HSBC’s Expat Explorer 2015 survey, the UAE has been singled out for the opportunities it offers people looking to build their careers or for those seeking to start their own businesses, with Dubai being chosen as the second-best city globally for expat entrepreneurs.
A survey among the alumni of a prestigious business school had shown that Dubai outclassed all other international cities to be ranked as the most attractive city in the world to live and work in as the appeal of the UAE as hub for new generation of top global business talent continued to rise.
