Dubai, Manama top list for foreign-born residents

BERLIN, Germany, September 4, 2019

Dubai has the highest percentage of foreign-born residents globally, making it the city with the highest concentration of internationals, followed by Manama, according to a study released by on-demand housing platform Nestpick.com.

The study reveals the best international cities that support Generation Z’s values and vision by using data relating to advocacy, digitalisation, liveability, and business opportunities.

Despite Brexit, London is the #1 city for Generation Z, according to the report. With a focus on values, London’s overall compatibility with Gen Z principles, ability to meet educational needs and strong business opportunities makes it the strongest-performing city in the index

Stockholm comes second for Gen Z-ers,and is the #1 city for Digital Payment &Banking, Environmental Action, and the Right to Protest. Los Angeles ranks at #3, placing second for Esports and third for Education.

Manama, Bahrain ranks #105 out of 110 for Generation Z worldwide, the report said.

“Taking a values-centric approach to this study, we looked into which cities around the world best understand, advocate, and embody the principles Gen Z-ers prioritise,” said  Ömer Kücükdere, founder and CEO of Nestpick.com.

“Interestingly, despite the uncertainty surrounding Brexit and the high costs of living, our research has found that London ranks first overall. Adding on to the advantages of a weakening pound, London has shown how it is at the forefront of digitalisation, advocacy, entertainment, and business. Brexit or not, London has the foundations to continue magnetising Generation Z in the long-term.

“The level of connectivity native to Generation Z has shown that not only are values being shared transnationally, but so are movements.

“Gen Z-ers from Malala Yousafzai to Greta Thunberg are molding the narrative of their generation, and movements such as Fridays for Future are proving that they are a voice that demands to be heard. Recognising their voices, it is prime time we reflect upon ourselves, empathise with their concerns, and act on them,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
