Arab youths choose UAE as favourite place to live

The UAE remains the top choice of residence for Arab youth for the 10th consecutive year, according to the 13th edition of the annual Asda’a BCW Arab Youth Survey released on Tuesday.
Not just that, nearly half of the Arab youth also want their countries to emulate the UAE.
The survey findings revealed that nearly half (47 per cent) wanted to live in the UAE, while 19 per cent chose the US and 15 per cent opted for Canada. Around half (46 per cent) also said the UAE was the nation they most wanted their own country to emulate, followed by the US (28 per cent), and Canada and Germany (both on 12 per cent).
The UAE remains the most preferred country ever since young Arab men and women were first asked the question in 2012. Youths from Sudan, Egypt, Iraq, Saudi Arabia and Algeria topped the list who have the highest preference to live in the UAE.
The annual survey was conducted among 3,400 nationals of Mena countries across 17 Arab countries aged between 18 and 24 years. Conducted between June 6 and June 30, 2021, the survey was split 50:50 between males and females.
In the UAE, 90 per cent of Emirati youth said their ‘best days lie ahead’.
Nearly half of young Arabs (47 per cent) selected the UAE as their favourite place to live, more than double the number of votes the poll’s second-ranked country, the US received. Almost the same proportion (46 per cent) said the UAE was the country they most wanted their own to be like, followed by the US (28 per cent), Canada, Germany and France.
Highlighting the key characteristics of the UAE, Arab youths noted that the country’s growing economy, the wide range of opportunities it offers, clean environment, safety and security, generous salary packages make the country stand out among the Arab world.
“These findings will be particularly gratifying as the UAE celebrates its half-centennial this year and looks forward to the next 50 years of its prosperity and success. With the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic now receding thanks to the leadership’s proactive efforts, and Expo 2020 Dubai underway amidst huge fanfare, a spirit of positivity and optimism is clearly detectable in this year’s findings, while the trust of Emirati youth in their nation’s economic vision remains universally high,” said Sunil John, president, MENA, BCW and founder of ASDA’A BCW.
99 per cent of Emiratis say economy heading in right direction
The annual survey results found that nearly two-thirds, 62 per cent, of Emirati youth expect to have a better life than their parents while a staggering 99 per cent believe their country’s economy was heading in the right direction, up from 97 per cent last year.
Moreover, all the young Emirati men and women polled this year said their voice mattered to the country’s leadership, another inspiring finding to mark the nation’s Jubilee year.
“National pride is clearly a theme of our findings in the UAE, with 41 per cent of Emirati respondents saying their nationality is central to their identity, more than double the regional average. This shows just how powerfully the message of national unity conveyed by the UAE’s leadership has resonated with its young citizens,” added John.

Woman dies after Alec Baldwin fires prop gun on film set

US actor Alec Baldwin fired a prop gun that killed a cinematographer and wounded the director on a film set in New Mexico, US law enforcement officers said Thursday.
The incident happened on the set of “Rust” in the southwestern US state, where Baldwin is playing the lead in a 19th-century western.
Halyna Hutchins and Joel Souza “were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin,” the sheriff in Santa Fe said in a statement.
Hutchins, 42, was transported to hospital by helicopter but died of her wounds, while Souza, 48, was taken by ambulance and is receiving treatment.
No charges have been filed over the incident, which is being investigated, with witness interviews ongoing.
A spokesperson from the production told The Hollywood Reporter the “accident” involved the misfire of a prop gun with blanks.
A sheriff’s spokesman told the publication that the director was in “critical condition.”
The incident took place at the Bonanza Creek Ranch, a production location near Santa Fe which is popular with Hollywood filmmakers.
Movie sets usually have stringent rules over the use of prop weapons, but accidents have happened.
Most famously, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died during filming of “The Crow” after being shot by a gun that was supposed to fire blanks.
