Switzerland leads the way in terms of talent competitiveness, according to the 2018 Global Talent Competitiveness Index (GTCI) report.
The report found that Singapore ranks as the most talent-competitive nation in the APAC region. Japan is the only other Asian country in the top 25, at 20th place.
In general, European countries continue to dominate the GTCI rankings, with 15 in the top 25.
