It has been reported in The Washington Post in the article titled 'Want to Move Abroad? This Map Shows the Best and Worst Countries to be an Expat' published on November 5 that China and Thailand topped the list, followed by Switzerland, the Cayman Islands, Bahrain and Singapore. The news forum depicts a map of how the 34 countries compare, with many Asian developing economies faring particularly well. It’s thought to be because companies in these nations pay expat workers an average of 15% more, which alongside lower living costs leaves them with much better spending power. The data, which didn’t take into consideration guest workers, also revealed that Western Europe ranked well for child rearing, thanks to a high quality of education.

Renowned for delivering worldwide removals for more than 50 years, Interdean specialise in assisting those moving to China, Thailand and Switzerland, amongst other destinations included within the study. Naturally the team were keen to respond to the news and a representative from the firm gives their views.

“Research of this nature is fairly frequent and can help those considering moving overseas to reach a more informed decision about where they wish to live. What is interesting about this particular research is the high positions of countries such as Bahrain and the Cayman Islands which are not often featured in these types of studies. It’s useful that the research is split into different areas too, such as childcare. Therefore a couple contemplating having children might want to move to Germany or Switzerland.”
