About 78 percent of expatriates say that Malaysia offers better work-life balance, a friendly culture and lower costs for raising a child, according to the new HSBC Expat Explorer.

In a statement, HSBC Bank Malaysia Bhd said this was slightly more than the expatriate average across Asia-Pacific of 72 percent, but considerably more than other emerging economies such as the Philippines, where only 59 percent of expatriates see their work and life balance stayed the same or improved.

The bank said in the ninth edition of this annual survey, nearly 27,000 expatriates from 190 countries shared their thoughts and experiences of expatriate life, creating the 2016 Expat Explorer report titled “Achieving ambitions abroad”.
