The UAE has been named as the best place in the world for leading executives to relocate to, according to global research by professional online network LinkedIn.

LinkedIn found the oil-rich state attracted more young talent than anywhere else in the world, with 1.89 per cent of its total workforce being added to member profiles in 2014.

The study revealed that the leading source of professional talent arriving in the UAE was from India (28 per cent), while the UK, Pakistan, the US and Qatar completed the top five. Other Gulf states contributed a total of 11 per cent of members who relocated to the UAE last year.

Professional services, financial services and insurance, architectural and engineering, retail and consumer products, and technology (software) were the top sectors for professionals moving to the UAE.

Other nations attracting the most talent were Switzerland (0.9 per cent) and Saudi Arabia (0.85 per cent). Singapore, Australia, Brazil, Mexico, Canada, South Africa, Belgium and Ireland all also scored well.

At the other end of the scale, India (0.23 per cent), France (0.2 per cent) and Italy (0.19 per cent) all saw talent leave their shores.
