The annual survey used by multinational companies to design expatriate packages is done by consulting firm, Mercer.

The Quality of Living Survey looked into 10 categories that includes political and social environment, economic environment, natural environment, housing, health services and education.

Singapore took the title as best Southeast Asian city in terms of quality of living and ranked 25 globally.

Other prominent South-East Asian cities included were Bangkok, ranking fourth in the region and 131 globally, Manila ranking fifth in the region and 135 globally and Jakarta in sixth place, with a global rank of 143.

Mercer’s survey also included a city infrastructure ranking that assesses each city’s supply of electricity, drinking water, telephone and mail services, public transportation, traffic congestion and the range of international flights available from local airports.

Singapore topped the city infrastructure ranking, followed by Frankfurt and Munich, both in second place.

Mercer’s Career business president and senior partner Ilya Bonic said, “Economic instability, social unrest, and growing political upheaval all add to the complex challenge multinational companies face when analysing quality of living for their expatriate workforce.”

He also mentioned that it is vital for multinationals and governments to have quality of living information that is accurate, detailed and reliable.

“It not only enables these employers to compensate employees appropriately, but it also provides a planning benchmark and insights into the often-sensitive operational environment that surrounds their workforce,” he said.

This is a pretty big achievement for our beloved country, and goes to show despite our flaws, there is still plenty of things to be loved.
