Middle Eastern top the rankings according to expats’ in terms of the financial rewards they offer. The survey showed that career-orientated women thrive in Qatar, which was chosen as the best country for both increased earnings (57 percent) and a greater ability to save money (73 percent).

Meanwhile, the UAE is also recognised under these categories as 4 out of 10 women said that they earn more here than in their home country, above the global average of 31 percent.

Additionally, 54 percent highlighted that they are able to put aside more money by working in the country.

Almost half (49 percent) of expat women in the UAE associate with this view, far above the global average of 38 percent.
