UAE, China Most Popular Emerging Markets for Millennials Seeking to Advance Career

For the second year in a row, the United Arab Emirates and China are the most preferred emerging-market countries among young people who would like to live abroad to advance their careers, a World Economic Forum survey shows.

The two ranked as the most preferred emerging market countries − in 11th and 12th place, respectively − ahead of the Scandinavian countries, all other BRICS countries and Singapore. The US, UK and Canada led the list.

The survey, organized by the Global Shapers team of the World Economic Forum, asked some 20,000 millennials aged 18-35 about a wide range of issues concerning business, the economy, politics, technology and values.

Respondents from 187 countries and territories took part in the survey, with most coming from China, the United States and India.
