Singapore is the sixth most expensive place in Asia to employ expats, a new survey has showed.

The overall package for those in middle management costs about US$257,000 a year on average, according to human resources and relocation consultancy ECA International's latest MyExpatriate Market Pay Survey.

The study out on Wednesday surveyed over 10,000 expats from more than 269 companies in 163 countries.

An expat's package typically consists of a cash salary, taxes, and benefits - which includes acommodation, international schools, utilities or cars, said Mr Lee Quane, regional manager of ECA.
