Survey: Fewer Arab youth interested in moving to Qatar

Qatar no longer ranks among the most desirable countries to live in among Arab youth, but is proving to be a popular place for entrepreneurs in the region, according to a new study.

The annual Arab Youth Survey, published by public relations firm ASDA’A Burson-Marsteller, polled 3,500 people between the ages of 18 and 24 years old in 16 countries across the Middle East and North Africa on a variety of political and personal subjects.

One of the questions asked respondents to name the country, anywhere in the world, that they would like to live in.

For the past two years, Qatar ranked fifth after being named by 8 percent and 13 percent of respondents in 2015 and 2014, respectively. This year, however, the country did not appear at all in the top 10.
