Dubai ranked in world’s top 10 most positive country
In a new global index, the UAE has been ranked as the eighth most positive country in the world.
The Positivity Index of Nations is a global report published by the Positive Economy Institute, and measures countries’ positive economic indicators. The index also looks at the positive behavior of countries towards future generations’ interests and wellbeing, as well as countries’ positive impact on the global arena.
Published annually since 2013, this was the first year that the UAE was included in the report as a non-OECD country. The UAE ranked higher than 27 of the 34 OECD member countries including the UK, USA, France, and Australia.
So how does the UAE rank so highly? Well, the country was recognized for its high levels of wellbeing, positive behavior both nationally and globally, focus on future generations and preparing them for the future, developments in the education sector and its initiatives in achieving gender balance in various areas of life and work, according to the state news agency, Wam.
The UAE support towards global climate change efforts and the development of sustainable energy solutions also contributed to their high performance.
Since its first publication six years ago, the Positivity Index of Nations has measured the ability of countries to contribute positively – on a local and international scale – through three main dimensions: Educate and Finance Future Generations, Preparing Adequate Infrastructure for Future Generations and Building a Consensus for Future Generations.
