Top 15 Most Popular Expatriate Destinations
We look at the top 15 most popular expatriate destinations for 2013 based on the Global Professionals On The Move 2013 report by Hydrogen.
The top 15 destinations in this year’s survey remain largely the same as previous years, showing that today’s professionals still favour relocating to traditional expatriate destinations.
The United States remains the destination of choice for the highest number of global professionals, in fact increasing its lead by 7% to 23%, followed by the UK and Australia.
Even despite the tougher economic climate it seems that the United States never loses its appeal as a land of opportunity.
Looking at specific sectors, this year the UK ranked second choice for professionals in law, life sciences and technology, and fourth for those in finance.
Australia, consistently popular as it combines highly developed professional sectors with a high quality of life, ranked second for oil and gas, third for finance and life sciences, and fourth for law and technology.
Key growth market countries like China feature much lower down on the survey respondents’ wish list, with China only in 11th place and Brazil in 12th.
South Africa is the only African country listed, in 17th place.
