Auckland, which has the most intense economic activity in New Zealand, was chosen as the most liveable city in the world. Caracas, the capital of Venezuela, ranked first among the least livable cities.
The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) has chosen the world’s most livable cities, taking into account factors such as stability, infrastructure, access to education and healthcare. According to the report published after the research of 140 cities, Auckland took the first place in the list of the most livable cities in the world.
It was stated that the success of Auckland, which is the most populated city in New Zealand, but the city with the highest economic activity, is due to the success shown in the corona virus epidemic. Auckland topped the list, followed by Osaka in Japan, Adelaide in Australia, Wellington in New Zealand and Tokyo, the capital of Japan. No city from England was able to enter the top 10.
In the list, cities in Europe declined, while those in Australia, Japan and New Zealand rose. While the island countries in question took quick action against the corona virus epidemic, they managed to minimize the cases and ease the restrictions.
“Auckland has risen to the top of the rankings thanks to its successful approach to the Covid-19 pandemic. European cities performed particularly poorly in this year’s list. 8 of the 10 biggest declines in the rankings are from European cities,” the report said. It was emphasized that the capital of Austria, Vienna, fell from the first place to the 12th place, and it was underlined that it had been at the top of the list for several years.
It was stated that Hamburg, in the north of Germany, also experienced a sharp decline, falling 34 places to 47th place. In addition, “Cities around the world are now much less livable than before the pandemic started, and we’ve seen regions like Europe take a particularly hard hit,” it said.
