1548512543083-1187626120Top 10 Countries for Women to Work Abroad

For International Women’s Day, InterNations took a look at women working abroad and the countries that they are most satisfied in.

  • Women are less likely to move abroad for their career than men (25% vs. 38%).
  • Czechia, Bahrain, Taiwan, Norway, Denmark, Luxembourg, New Zealand, the Netherlands, Malta, and Australia offer the best working life for women.
  • Women working abroad are more likely to be single and not have kids than men working abroad.

 

Munich, 28 February 2019 — Women are more likely to be the traveling spouse than actively pursuing a career abroad, as the latest Expat Insider survey by InterNations reveals. In fact, 28% of female expats name love or their partner’s job/education as their main motivation for moving, followed by just 25% citing reasons that are related to their own career. Male expats, on the other hand, name work-related reasons most commonly (38%), while just 13% moved for love or their partner’s job/education.

 

For International Women’s Day, InterNations, the world’s largest expat community, took a look at the women that do work abroad and the countries in which they are happiest with their career. The findings are based on the insights of 8,855 female expats that took part in the Expat Insider 2018 survey, one of the most extensive surveys about working and living abroad, annually conducted by InterNations. For the survey’s Working Abroad Index, several topics such as career prospects, work-life balance, and job security are factored in.

 

 

Career Women Abroad
Similar to male expats, women working abroad tend to be highly educated: about nine in ten of both women (89%) and men (85%) hold a bachelor’s degree or higher. This is despite the fact that women working abroad are on average 3.5 years younger than their male counterparts (40.1 years vs. 43.6 years).

When it comes to their personal life, the Expat Insider survey shows that just 56% of women working abroad are in a committed relationship — this is 15 percentage points lower than the share of men who are working abroad and in a relationship at the same time (71%). What is more, 63% of working female expats do not have any children, while just 47% of men say the same. “The results of the Expat Insider survey leave us with the question whether women have the same opportunities as men when it comes to combining a career abroad with family life,” says InterNations Founder and Co-CEO Malte Zeeck. However, regardless of whether this is a personal choice or not, female and male expats working are about equally satisfied with their life abroad (76% vs. 75%, respectively).

Top 10 Countries for Women to Work Abroad

1. Czechia

  • Career prospects: 73% satisfied (vs. 63% of men)
  • Work-life balance: 79% satisfied (vs. 78% of men)
  • Job security: 78% satisfied (vs. 66% of men)

 

Czechia is the highest-ranking country for women to work in, climbing up eight ranks within one year. With 83% of women being happy with their jobs in the country, their satisfaction rate is eleven percentage points higher than that of men (72%). Furthermore, female expats in the country (73%) also tend to rate their career prospects better than male expats (63%). In fact, a female Ukrainian expat appreciates the “availability of jobs on the market”. However, just 38% of expat women working in Czechia say that they earn more than what they would in a similar position back home, compared to 50% of all women working abroad.

 

2. Bahrain

 

  • Career prospects: 66% satisfied (vs. 72% of men)
  • Work-life balance: 76% satisfied (vs. 79% of men)
  • Job security: 61% satisfied (vs. 78% of men)

 

After being voted the best destination for women working abroad in 2017, Bahrain lost the top spot in 2018. However, the country still boasts above-average results: nearly two-thirds of female expats in the country (66%) are pleased with their career prospects (vs. 53% of women globally). The same is true for their work-life balance, with 76% of female expats in Bahrain being pleased, 16 percentage points more than women globally (60%). Therefore, it might be no surprise that close to nine in ten female expats (88%) are generally happy with their jobs in Bahrain, compared to 62% of women worldwide.

 

3. Taiwan

 

  • Career Prospects: 66% satisfied (vs. 62% of men)
  • Work-life balance: 77% satisfied (vs. 66% of men)
  • Job security: 72% satisfied (vs. 78% of men)

 

Taiwan narrowly dropped out of the top 10 destinations for women working abroad in 2017 (11th) but is back in the top 3 now. The comeback might be due to women’s higher satisfaction with their working hours (72% in 2018 vs. 60% in 2017) as well as career prospects (66% in 2018 vs. 59% in 2017). A Filipino expat living in Taiwan even states that her favorite thing about living in the country is “how easy it is to find a job”.

 

4. Norway

 

  • Career prospects: 50% satisfied (vs. 61% of men)
  • Work-life balance: 75% satisfied (vs. 74% of men)
  • Job security: 73% satisfied (vs. 69% of men)

Ranking among the top 10 countries for women working abroad for the fourth year in a row, Norway comes in fourth now. A British female expat points out to like the “opportunity to live a healthy life with a good work-life balance” in Norway. In fact, three-quarters of female expats in Norway (75%) are satisfied with their work-life balance (vs. 60% of women worldwide), and 86% are happy with their working hours (vs. 61% of women globally). The high overall ranking is despite the fact that female expats are less satisfied with their career prospects in Norway than men (50% vs. 61% satisfied).

5. Denmark

 

  • Career prospects: 49% satisfied (vs. 65% of men)
  • Work-life balance: 82% satisfied (vs. 84% of men)
  • Job security: 61% satisfied (vs. 69% of men)

 

After coming in tenth for three consecutive years, Denmark slightly climbs up the ranks. One of the reasons for the country’s improved rating might be the higher level of female expats’ satisfaction with their job security (61% in 2018 vs. 53% in 2017). However, Denmark’s work-life balance is the country’s strongest asset, being voted the best in the world by women! An Iranian woman mentions “the flexible working hours” among her favorite things about life in Denmark. More than four in five (84%) are happy with their working hours (vs. 61% of expat women globally).

6. Luxembourg

  • Career prospects: 56% satisfied (vs. 62% of men)
  • Work-life balance: 65% satisfied (vs. 59% of men)
  • Job security: 70% satisfied (vs. 79% of men)

Luxembourg is an attractive destination for those looking for a well-paid position. More than three-quarters of female expats working in Luxembourg (76%) believe that they earn more than they would in a similar position back home. For a German expat the fact that her “job is well paid” is even one of the best things about life in Luxembourg. Both men and women rate Luxembourg as the best country in terms of economy and job security for the fourth year in a row! Exactly seven in ten women who are working (70%) are happy with this factor, compared to 58% of women worldwide. What is more, not one female respondent in Luxembourg has something negative to say about the state of the country’s economy (vs. 18% globally).

7. New Zealand

 

  • Career prospects: 51% satisfied (vs. 70% of men)
  • Work-life balance: 78% satisfied (vs. 70% of men)
  • Job security: 68% satisfied (vs. 76% of men)

A great work-life balance seems to play a major role in women’s satisfaction with working in New Zealand: close to four in five female expats (78%) are happy with this factor, compared to 60% of women working around the globe. What is more, 80% of expat women in the country are pleased with their working hours, which is six percentage points higher than the results among male expats working in the country (74%). Only when it comes to their career prospects do women seem to be worse off than men in New Zealand: just 51% of expat women are satisfied with this factor, compared to 70% of men. However, not everyone seems to agree, as a female British expat living in New Zealand points out the “ease of getting jobs and starting a business of our own”.

8. The Netherlands

  • Career prospects: 58% satisfied (vs. 68% of men)
  • Work-life balance: 73% satisfied (vs. 77% of men)
  • Job security: 68% satisfied (vs. 73% of men)

 

With 73% of women happy with the respective factor, the Netherlands also offers a great work-life balance (vs. 60% women worldwide). Furthermore, 92% are happy with the economy, compared to 64% of women worldwide. Close to half (48%) even say it is very good, which is twice the global average (24%). Maybe this contributes to a Polish expat stating that the “great salary” is one of the best things about life in the country. Interestingly, 58% of women are happy with their career prospects, which is higher than the global average of women (53%) but lower than the share of men (68%).

 

9. Malta

 

  • Career prospects: 58% satisfied (vs. 48% of men)
  • Work-life balance: 70% satisfied (vs. 81% of men)
  • Job security: 66% satisfied (vs. 65% of men)

 

Moving to Malta seems to be beneficial for women’s careers, as 58% of female expats in the country are satisfied with their career prospects (vs. 48% of men). What is more, about two-thirds of female expats on the island (66%) are pleased with their job security, which is eight percentage points higher than the global average of women (58%). While women working in Malta are more likely to be satisfied with their work-life balance than female expats worldwide (70% vs. 60% globally), male expats in the country seem to enjoy it even more: more than four in five (81%) are happy with this factor.

 

10. Australia

 

  • Career prospects: 65% satisfied (vs. 67% of men)
  • Work-life balance: 70% satisfied (vs. 69% of men)
  • Job security: 64% satisfied (vs. 63% of men)

 

Being about equally satisfied with their career prospects, work-life balance, and job security, Australia seems to be a great country to work for both female and male expats. In fact, 70% of women are happy with their work-life balance, compared to just 60% of women globally. A female Swiss expat points out that “the work-life balance and the weather are amazing” in Australia. Maybe that is one of the reasons why 64% of women are also satisfied with their jobs overall, which is even 13 percentage point more than in 2017 (51%). What is more, 60% of expat women also say that they earn more in the country than they would in a similar position in their home countries (vs. only 48% in 2017).

 

 

About the InterNations Expat Insider 2018 Survey 
For its annual Expat Insider survey, InterNations asked more than 18,000 expatriates representing 178 nationalities and living in 187 countries or territories to provide information on various aspects of expat life, as well as their gender, age, and nationality. Participants were asked to rate up to 48 different aspects of life abroad on a scale of one to seven. The rating process emphasized the respondents’ personal satisfaction with these aspects and considered both emotional topics as well as more factual aspects with equal weight. The respondents’ ratings of the individual factors were then bundled in various combinations for a total of 17 subcategories, and their mean values were used to draw up six topical indices: Quality of Life, Ease of Settling In, Working Abroad, Family Life, Personal Finance, and Cost of Living Index. Except for the latter, all indices were further averaged in order to rank 68 expatriate destinations around the world. In 2018, the top 10 are Bahrain, Taiwan, Ecuador, Mexico, Singapore, Portugal, Costa Rica, Spain, Colombia, and Czechia.

For a country to be featured in the respective Working Abroad Indices for women and men, a sample size of at least 31 survey participants per country and gender was necessary. In 2018, 57 countries met these requirements for women working abroad, and 63 for men.

Abu Dhabi Welcomes More Than 10 Million  International Visitors in 2018 

Largest sport and humanitarian event to be hosted first time in UAE

 

10296641_10207806125292670_1380295115210999376_n

All India, 28th February 2019:  Abu Dhabi welcomed more than 10 million international visitors in 2018, with the emirate also posting figures showing incredible growth over the last three years, powered by the addition of a host of world-class events and enhancements to all of its specialised tourism sectors, massive improvements to its infrastructure and significant development of its cultural assets.

The UAE capital, which has witnessed an increase in hotel guests to the emirate of 13.62% since the beginning of 2016, has worked hard to reinforce its position as a destination with remarkable global appeal and as a place destined to become a key cultural city of the future.

Abu Dhabi has seen huge advances across all areas of tourism sectors, including the cultural, business, family-focussed and medical sectors, with the cruise sector providing more than 350,000 visitors to the emirate in 2018. The emirate’s world-class cultural assets also attracted more than 2,672,732 people to the emirate; further booting visitation metrics.

The UAE capital has also witnessed the addition of a number of world-class cultural institutions, such as the spectacular Louvre Abu Dhabi and the reopening of the iconic Qasr Al Hosn site, as well as the launch of several high profile events and initiatives which have added to its global reputation.

Figures released by the Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi) have shown more than 10 million visitors came to experience the UAE capital last year, made up of both day-trippers and overnight guests, with these hotel guests increasing by 3.94% compared to 2017 at one of the emirate’s 168 hotels or hotel apartments. In the last three years, Abu Dhabi has posted record numbers of hotel guests every year, regularly exceeding DCT Abu Dhabi’s annual targets.

The key markets of India, the US and China have all posted double-digit growth for hotel guests in 2018, underpinning the impressive surge in visitor numbers to the emirate. India and China remain the two top markets for overseas visitors, with the UK – the top European source market – rounding out the top three markets for overseas visitors.

“We are incredibly pleased to see these positive metrics, as year on year we have exceeded the already ambitious targets set for Abu Dhabi’s growth,” said HE Mohamed Khalifa Al Mubarak, Chairman at DCT Abu Dhabi. “The Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi has made extraordinary strides since its very inception, and a snapshot of the last three years gives an even clearer indication of the strength of the emirate’s growth and standing on the global stage. We are now firmly established as a world-class cultural destination. With the emirate’s natural beauty as a stepping off point, Abu Dhabi has steadily enhanced its touristic and cultural proposition until today, visitors can now enjoy incredible options in entertainment – both sporting and artistic – retail, dining and hospitality, as well as top class cultural venues for visual and performing arts experiences. The soaring visitor figures we have seen are evidence of the increase in global appeal of our emirate.

“The past three years have seen countless significant additions to Abu Dhabi’s structural, touristic and cultural landscape. Most prominent amongst these include the recent reopening of the Al Hosn cultural site, which now offers visitors new experiences of heritage and artistic creativity, and the stunning Louvre Abu Dhabi. The annual Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix has gone from strength to strength, and has attracted millions of visitors to the Emirate since it launched in 2009.

“Other entertainment options have also proved popular with our overseas visitors. In the last three years our infrastructure has been boosted with many new additions, including Warner Bros World, which has added a new dimension to the entertainment offerings on Yas Island, which is in itself a massive success story for the emirate.

“On the business side of our mandate, we have also had considerable success, with our Abu Dhabi Convention Bureau continuing to secure high-profile conferences and events for the emirate, further establishing us on the global business world’s radar. Since 2009 we have welcomed thousands of delegates from overseas to our conferences, meetings and exhibitions, which have included such notable successes as the WorldSkills event, which took place in 2017 and attracted more than 100,000 visitors to Abu Dhabi from a multitude of overseas schools and universities.

“As a mark of how far we’ve come, we’re also looking forward in 2019 to hosting the biggest humanitarian event in history when we welcome the Special Olympics to Abu Dhabi.

“We have also courted cruise tourism with the opening of the new Mina Port and the Bani Yas Island beach cruise stopover. We have also just signed a memorandum of understanding with the Emirates Medical Association to tap into the booming sector of medical tourism.

“These successes are only a fraction of what DCT Abu Dhabi has implemented in the last three years, and it is important to note that our ambition does not stop there. We will continue to push for growth, and are working toward the introduction of further landmark initiatives and attractions in the coming years that will cement Abu Dhabi’s position as a one of the fastest growing destinations in the region in the last three years.”

Several sectors have significantly contributed to Abu Dhabi’s growing appeal to international travellers, with cultural tourism perhaps the most prominent; a highlight of which was the addition of Louvre Abu Dhabi to the emirate’s portfolio, garnering global attention upon its launch in 2017.

The first component of the ambitious Saadiyat Cultural District, the first universal museum in the region attracted more than 1 million visitors in its first year and put Abu Dhabi on the world’s ‘cultural map’. The reopening of the Al Hosn site was also a significant event for cultural tourism in Abu Dhabi, with the oldest building in the emirate, now a museum showcasing Abu Dhabi’s history and Emirati culture, reopening to great acclaim in late 2018.

Abu Dhabi is now established as a vibrant and dynamic hub for global business and the emirate has witnessed a sizeable growth in business events over the last five years. DCT Abu Dhabi’s Convention Bureau has achieved notable success in this time period, successfully bidding for globally recognised events such as the aforementioned Special Olympics, which will be held in Abu Dhabi this year, as well as beating off competitive bids from both Rio de Janeiro and St Petersburg to host the 2019 World Energy Congress (WEC), one of the world’s most important energy forums.

The cruise sector has also seen vast leaps forward in the last three years, with the new Abu Dhabi cruise terminal opening – a first of its kind in the region, offering state-of-the-art port facilities and features, such as airline check in, not offered anywhere else in the region – as well as the Sir Bani Yas Beach development. Both have increased Abu Dhabi’s appeal as an attractive port of call and homeport destination which has translated into an increase of 27.82% in cruise passengers to Abu Dhabi. 279,704 cruise passengers visited Abu Dhabi in 2016, compared with 354,015 in 2018. Also, during this time from 2016-18, some 963,257 cruise ship passengers disembarked at Abu Dhabi.

The healthcare sector value proposition has also been a focus for the emirate, as medical tourism is one of the fastest growing sectors of global tourism. In 2018, DCT Abu Dhabi partnered with the Department of Health to launch medical tourism initiatives to benefit the growth of the sector in the UAE capital, working to stimulate interest in the emirate’s cutting edge medical infrastructure, facilities and treatments and world-renowned doctors.

International Partnership for Nuclear Disarmament Verification working group meeting in Finland

Ministry for Foreign Affairs  28.2.2019 14.00

The Ministry for Foreign Affairs and the Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority of Finland will host a working group meeting of the International Partnership for Nuclear Disarmament Verification (IPNDV) in Finlandia Hall from 5 to 7 March 2019.

The IPNDV is based on a US initiative. Its first meeting was held in Washington DC in spring 2015. The Partnership’s goal is to promote nuclear disarmament. More than 25 countries, both non-nuclear weapon states and nuclear weapon states, participate in the IPNDV.

Nuclear disarmament is not possible without strong verification. The importance of verification for nuclear disarmament is growing and participation of non-nuclear weapon states in the work enhances its credibility.

The verification of arms control agreements has so far concentrated on the monitoring and verification of compliance with regulations relating to the limitation of the number of nuclear weapons and their means of delivery. The IPNDV aims to develop means and practices, which help make sure that nuclear weapons are dismantled and their parts destructed.

Finland joined the Partnership when it was established. The Ministry for Foreign Affairs, the Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority and the Defence Forces have been involved in the Partnership.

Inquiries: Jarmo Viinanen, Ambassador, Ministry for Foreign Affairs, tel. +358 295 352 028, and Kari Peräjärvi, Principal Advisor, Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority, Finland +358 9 759 88705.

Wing Commander Abhinandan will be in India Tomorrow

Wing Commander Abhinandan will be in India Tomorrow | Another MoDiplomacy Win

by IRC-ADMIN – Feb 28 2019 4:12PM

Indian Air Force (IAF) Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman, who is currently being held captive by Pakistan, will be released tomorrow. The announcement was made by Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan. This is done just before the Joint Conference by three forces of India planned for today evening.

First Pakistan tried to use Wing Commander as a trump card to cut a deal with India in the same way they did in Kandahar. But India asserted that there is a no question of any deal on the return of Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman. India acted in a way Pakistan understands. Also going by the Geneva convention, Pakistan had to return the Wing Commander anyways within the seven days of his capture. The truth is, Pakistan can’t stand India’s diplomatic and military prowess and had to take this step. Now Imran Khan is trying to capture the opportunity to become a “Good Boy” on an international platform and give a new prop to his “Aman ki Asha” sleeper cells in India.

Australia to host 2021 IAAF

Australia will host the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) World Athletics Series event for the first time in 25 years, following the decision to award the 2021 World Cross Country Championships to Bathurst in New South Wales.

The event will be held at one of Australia’s most famous sporting venues, Mount Panorama, which is better known as the home of Australia’s premier endurance motor race. It will now welcome the world’s best endurance runners on March 20.

The varied landscape and altitude around the iconic race track offer a range of enticing and challenging options for cross country running. The event will also benefit from the established major event facilities on site, including grandstands, administration offices, team areas and a full media centre, which will significantly reduce the costs and complexity of organising the biennial championships.

Athletics Australia president Mark Arbib said the event would embrace both elite and recreational runners in a celebration of the art of the cross country.

“As recreational running continues to grow in Australia, the World Cross Country represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for our elite runners to race on home soil, but also for our community runners to celebrate the sport and be involved in running events planned to take place during the championships,” Arbib said.

“Having this event in Australia and on the iconic Bathurst site will allow everyday Australians to test themselves on the same challenging course that the world best will run. We are over the moon to bring the World Championships to Australia and Bathurst.”

IAAF President Sebastian Coe congratulated Athletics Australia for producing such an appealing bid for the World Cross Country Championships.

“This will be the first time since the 1996 World U20 Championships, held in Sydney, that Australia has hosted one of the IAAF’s major events, so it is high time we returned,” Coe said.

“Australia’s reputation for organising outstanding sporting events is well-deserved. The Sydney Olympics, and particularly Magic Monday of the athletics programme, remains one of the best experiences of my life as a sporting spectator, so I am delighted that we will be returning to New South Wales. I would

like to thank the New South Wales Government, the City of Bathurst and Athletics Australia for their commitment to this event. I am confident that it will be a great success under their stewardship.”

The first official IAAF World Cross Country Championships were held in Belgium in 1973, but the tradition of cross country racing dates back to the late 1800s. The first International Cross Country Championships (the forerunner to this event) were held at Hamilton Park Racecourse in Scotland in 1903. A cross country race was included in the Olympic Games in 1912, 1920 and 1924, and there is currently a campaign for the discipline to return to the Olympic programme in Paris in 2024.
