by | News

OFWs may find a renewed validation of their decisions to work in the Gulf when they find out that UAE, together with Saudi Arabia, are still the top paying countries for migrant workers.

In a recent survey that covered over 600 multi-national companies and locally-owned conglomerates by Aon, the results showed that both the UAE and Saudi Arabia continue to be the leading nations in salary increases this year. Moreover, the data showed they have the highest salary increase projections for 2018 at 4.5 percent.

The survey managers and finance experts trust that this positive forecast is due to improving economic situation in the region caused by the efforts of the government to stabilize oil prices and economic transformation programs.

Reports say that salary increases for 2017 are highest for the Life Sciences at 5.1 percent while the Construction and Transportation Services sectors suffered the lowest salary increases at an average of just 2.4 percent.
