The UAE also secured a place among the top 10 countries in nine indexes, with the readiness factor seeing significant improvement, being ranked 7th globally and first in the Middle East and North Africa.

The UAE topped “Students mobility inbound” and “Collected personal income tax,” indexes, came second in the “Competent senior managers” index and occupied the third slot in the “Foreign highly-skilled personnel.”

The UAE was also ranked 11th globally in the “Quality of life” and made progress in many other indexes in the report.
