Singapore ‘most liveable city in the world’…..for expatriates

I Love SG!

Don’t tell my wife, but I love SG!

SINGAPORE: Singapore has again been ranked the most liveable city in Asia and the world according to an index for expatriate living conditions published by human resource consultancy ECA International on Thursday (Jan 22).

“Good air quality, solid infrastructure, decent medical facilities, low crime and health risks have contributed to Singapore maintaining its position at the top of the global ranking for quality of living for Asian assignees,” said Mr Lee Quane, Regional Director for Asia at ECA International.

Although some Singaporeans sneered at this latest accolade saying that Singapore is indeed a good place for expatriates who are generally paid well and are given good living allowances, others are more forgiving.

“If Singapore is good for expatriates, then it is good enough for me,” said Theresa Ooi, 24 a trainee teacher.

“Money is not everything. If money is a factor, then everywhere would be good, wouldn’t it?”

“Would you want to go and live in Baghdad with a million dollars in your pocket?” she asked.
