Auckland, August 18, 2016

Auckland has another bouquet as it chases the title of the world’s most liveable city.

The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) has just published its annual index of global liveability and Auckland moves up a spot to number eight from ninth last year and 10th in 2014.

Melbourne is rated top followed by Vienna, Vancouver, Toronto, Calgary, Adelaide and Perth.

Among the top 10 cities Auckland rates first equal for education, third for environment and culture, fourth equal for stability, eight equal for infrastructure and 10th for healthcare.

Mayor Len Brown says: “The improved ranking shows the work being put in to turn Auckland into a great international city is paying off and we can expect further boosts in our ranking once major infrastructure projects such as City Rail Link are completed.”

In the other main index, the Mercer Quality of Living Index, Auckland has held the third spot for the past four years.
