The top locations for working abroad

...The job market has witnessed many changes over the past few months. The Covid-19 pandemic that is being battled across the globe has redefined major operations and processes, placing companies in every industry under pressure to make the transition to virtual workplaces..."

The global job market, and how the jobs themselves work, has been radically changed by the pandemic. Cities, such as Hong Kong, which were perennially on the top of the charts for "preferred global cities" have experienced dramatic drops in that preference, now replaced by other options. The rise of Athens, Greece (for example) is a reflection of that countrie's government intentionally structuring laws to draw in the self-employed global worker and the distance empoyee.

When the pandemic pressures have faded even more, the expectation for other governments to get into a bidding war to draw expat workers and "digital nomads" will probably intensify.
