DOHA BEST AMONG GCC FOR EX­PATS

Qatar Today - - AFFAIRS > LOCAL -

De­spite a steady in­flux of ex­pa­tri­ates, Doha is ranked sixth in terms of cost of liv­ing among the eight cities in the Gulf Co­op­er­a­tion Coun­cil, ac­cord­ing to a sur­vey con­ducted by Mercer for their 2014 Cost of Liv­ing Rank­ings.

The sur­vey was con­ducted in 211 cities world­wide and would help multi­na­tional firms and gov­ern­ments de­ter­mine com­pen­sa­tion al­lowances for em­ploy­ees on in­ter­na­tional as­sign­ments. The sur­vey mea­sures the com­par­a­tive cost of more than 200 goods and ser­vices in each lo­ca­tion, in­clud­ing hous­ing, trans­porta­tion, food, cloth­ing, house­hold goods, and entertainment.
