Expats leaving Dubai who wish to maintain a high standard of living in the Middle East may wish to consider Qatar, which boasts one of the largest and fastest-growing economies in the world, it has been claimed.
In the second part of a series investigating investment opportunities for expats departing the UAE state, Shelter Offshore reported that while oil and gas is the mainstay of Qatar’s economy, it also has a sustainable growth base in other sectors, creating diverse employment opportunities for expats.
"The one thing about Doha that’s particularly positive in comparison to Dubai is that despite the fact it is advancing and developing, the rate at which it is doing so is not overwhelming nor is it therefore unsustainable," the site advised.
For those who are taking a job in a foreign country, arranging expat medical insurance may be an important factor prior to making the move, particularly in countries where access to public healthcare is limited.
In the first part of the series, Shelter Offshore identified China, Vietnam, Russia and Georgia as attractive destinations in Asia and Eastern Europe which may entice expats leaving Dubai.
