The UAE remains the top choice of residence for Arab youth for the 10th consecutive year, according to the 13th edition of the annual Asda’a BCW Arab Youth Survey released on Tuesday.
The survey findings revealed that nearly half (47 per cent) wanted to live in the UAE, while 19 per cent chose the US and 15 per cent opted for Canada. Around half (46 per cent) also said the UAE was the nation they most wanted their own country to emulate, followed by the US (28 per cent), and Canada and Germany (both on 12 per cent).
The UAE remains the most preferred country ever since young Arab men and women were first asked the question in 2012. Youths from Sudan, Egypt, Iraq, Saudi Arabia and Algeria topped the list who have the highest preference to live in the UAE.
