According to the HSBC “Expat Explorer” survey, which ranks the most popular countries according to numbers of expatriates, France’s image has improved over the past two years.

France is now 11 places higher compared with 2017, and is ranked 20th, scoring particularly highly for job security and work-life balance, for which it is ranked third. Taking into account other criteria, such as quality of life and children’s education, France is in 11th place overall.

Nearly one in two expatriates consider the French work culture to be more beneficial for their personal development than that of their country of origin.
