Globally, Europe continues to dominate the rankings, with Switzerland, Denmark, and Belgium being the most competitive countries. Austria, Finland, the Netherlands, Norway, Germany, Sweden and Luxembourg made up the top 10.
This was according to the 2017 edition of the IMD World Talent Report (WTR), which was prepared by the International Institute of Management Development.
The WTR uses international statistical data, supplemented by an Executive Opinion Survey, to assess the talent competitiveness of 63 economies based on their ability to develop, attract and retain talent for enterprises. The rankings were based on three factors—investments and development, appeal, and readiness.
Leading Asian economies -- Singapore, Hong Kong and Taiwan -- have cemented their global status as hubs of attracting and retaining highly-skilled workers though they trail Europe in this regard.
