Leading overseas relocation specialist, Interdean, has backed the results of a survey that rated UAE cities as the best to live and work in the Arab World.

The Emirates state cities of Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Sharjah took the first three positions in the ‘Top Cities of the Middle East’ survey conducted by and YouGov. Respondents claimed the UAE cities offered the most complete package, with the least bureaucracy, better job opportunities, optimum quality of life and competitive salaries.

In reaching its verdict, the poll asked participants to rate cities in the region according to economic, entrepreneurial, environmental and socio-cultural factors, labour rights, and every day and overall quality of life.

Each of the three cities performed consistently well across all the categories, with Abu Dhabi in particular achieving multiple first place positions. Such is the satisfaction of residents in the UAE that the majority said they would relocate to another city within the Emirates state before considering a move to another city in the region.

As a leading international shipping and removal services provider, Interdean has welcomed the findings and is aware of the UAE’s growing appeal, not only to native citizens but to those who have chosen to relocate there from overseas.

A spokesman for the company said: “We are not surprised that Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Sharjah have been rated the best cities to live and work in the Arab World. They have shown themselves to be progressive urban centres, offering residents ample opportunities both from a professional and personal perspective.

“It is not just the native citizens of the UAE who are content. It is fast becoming the destination of choice for expats seeking a new life overseas and we are sure the influx of people will continue due to the outstanding quality of life on offer there,” he added.
