The survey also showed that 81% of expats in Malaysia always try to extend their time here

The article Expats Prefer Brunei to Malaysia, Singapore, Survey Finds, published August 20th in reveals that Brunei, also known as the Abode of Peace, was the only country in the region to achieve a score of 100% expat satisfaction. The study, carried out by the American Malaysian Chamber of Commerce (AMCHAM), used the opinions of 475 senior executives working for US companies operating in ASEAN countries. Malaysia scored 94%, putting it in joint second place alongside Singapore and Laos. The survey also showed that 81% of expats in Malaysia always try to extend their time here.

The specialists at Interdean have 50 years’ experience in assisting customers with their moves around the world, including South East Asia. The recent survey was of great interest to the team and a representative from the firm reflects on the high scores achieved by these three countries.

“It’s good to see that three popular expat destinations have scored highly when it comes to expat satisfaction. It’s also interesting that such a small country as Brunei has managed to beat the likes of Singapore and Malaysia. We’ve been helping those to moving to Malaysia and Singapore for a number of years, and the reasons behind their moves are very varied. It isn’t uncommon for people to decide to live permanently in countries that they’ve been relocated to for work.”
