According to a recent survey, expats living and working in India are happier than their counterparts in the USA and China.

The respected HSBC survey awarded the sub-continent 26 points against 30 for the USA and 34 for China, with the results based on three parameters, family, experiences and economics. In the economics sector, India ranked just behind China and the USA, but scored in sub-sectors such as local economy at 10 points against the USA’s 16 and China’s 20.

As regards expats’ working lives, India sits at 24 points between China at 26 and the US’s 19, but won out on expat confidence levels as regards economic and political stability with 64 per cent of respondents having confidence in both. The sub-continent’s success continued with a score of 24 points in the family sector, against the USA’s 37 and China’s 38, and the relationship and education/child care scores were even higher at 15 points.

Two thirds of expats surveyed rained praise on the country for its career progression opportunities, saying working in India was sure to improve their future prospects. Entrepreneurs in particular stated they were more than happy with their choice of the country as a start-up base, with 11 per cent of those surveyed saying they’d moved to India deliberately for the purpose if setting up a business.

Almost half of expat business-owner respondents living in India gave positive reactions to the survey’s questions, giving the country a score above those of Oman, China and the entire Asia-Pacific region. Another positive identified by the survey was that almost half of those surveyed said their progress as regards long-term investments and savings had accelerated since the move. Many added they were putting money aside for their children’s’ education.
