A report has confirmed that for the seventh year running, the UAE is the top choice for Arab youths to want to live.

Followed by the United States and then Canada, the poll prepared by Burson-Marsteller lists safety, security and career growth as the top reasons for choosing the UAE as number one.

16 countries in the MENA region were polled in the ASDA'A  Burson-Marsteller Arab Youth 2018 survey, which also aims to understand the feelings of 200 million Arab youths.
