Emirate rated higher than Washington DC, Paris, Tokyo, Frankfurt and Brussels in ranking of Lowest Risk Cities in the world to recruit, employ and redeploy talent

Dubai is among the top 20 and first in the region on a list of safest cities in the world for expatriates, according to a latest report released.

A report released by Aon Hewitt, the global human resources company of Aon Plc, ranked Dubai 19th globally and 1st in the Middle East in the list of Lowest Risk Cities in the world to recruit, employ and redeploy talent.

The emirate also saw its ranking improving from 29th in 2012 to 19th in 2013 among the lowest risk cities.

NR, a PR consultant in Dubai, said she feels safer and happier here in Dubai despite spending a big part of her life in Europe. “I have spent around five years in London and other major European cities, but the development and growth I have seen here makes Dubai a real 21st century city.”
