VGP - Southern economic hub of Ho Chi Minh City is among the five biggest improvers of quality of life over the past five years.

This year, HCM City came in 116th with 57.1 points, up 4.4 percentage points, according to the Global Liveability Index 2018 of the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) – a research and analysis division of the UK-based Economist Group.

The rapid economic development along with the higher scores in the fields of recreational and art activities, private education, and road infrastructure were the main factors that helped the Vietnamese cities increase their places in the ranking.

Those that score the best tend to be mid-sized cities in wealthier countries, according to the survey.

The survey of liveable cities is conducted annually based on various criteria such as stability, health care, culture and environment, education, and infrastructure.

The ten most liveable cities are Vienna (Austria), Melbourne (Australia), Osaka (Japan), Calgary (Canada), Sydney (Australia), Vancouver (Canada), Toronto (Canada), Tokyo (Japan), Copenhagen (Denmark) and Adelaide (Australia).
