Singapore tops region in talent competitiveness for 6th straight year
The 2019 Global Talent Competitiveness Index (GTCI) sees six Asia-Pacific countries ranking in the top quartile, and Seoul becoming the first Asian city to break into the top ten ranking.
The GTCI is an annual benchmarking report that measures the ability of 125 countries to compete for talent.
This year’s report with the theme of ‘Entrepreneurial Talent and Global Competitiveness’ attempts to identify the ways in which companies, countries, and cities can foster entrepreneurial talent which makes up a critical component of competitiveness and innovation, and will become even more so in a fast-paced world of digitisation and globalisation.
In the 2019 GTCI, six Asia-Pacific countries rank in the top 30: Singapore takes the lead in the region (2nd globally), followed by New Zealand (11th), Australia (12th), Japan (22nd), Malaysia (27th) and South Korea (30th).
