Australia has always been an attraction for many people, be it for settling down or further studies or for a vacation. Each place in Goa has something unique to offer to the onlooker and this has been proved again by the latest research survey of Economist Intelligence Unit. Once again Melbourne has been awarded as the most liveable city in the world. The Australian city has won this award for the 7th time consecutively.
The research was conducted by Economist Intelligence Unit. Melbourne scored a whooping 97.5 out of 100 marks. The score has remained unchanged from what it was in the year 2016. The city has apparently defeated over 140 cities from around the world to win the title of the “Most Liveable City”. As for others, the top ten cities have remained unchanged. Vienna and Vancouver stood at the second and third positions respectively, while Adelaide and Perth were found to stand at the fifth and seventh spots, respectively.
The score is based on many parameters like education, healthcare, culture, environment, infrastructure etc… Melbourne scored a perfect 100 in the parameters of education showing that why it is the most preferred study destination by international students. Melbourne scored 95 for the stability parameter, 95.1 for culture and environment, and a perfect 100 for healthcare, and infrastructure.
In the official release, Lord Mayor Robert Doyle of Melbourne said, “We do not take this title for granted, (We will) work constantly to ensure we are protecting and enhancing our liveability for future generations.”
