Wellington is the best city in the world to live in, according to a global survey published in the Financial Times, Wellington Deputy Mayor Paul Eagle said. The sur vey conducted by the Deutsche Bank measured cities on factors such as cost of living, pollution, climate and house prices and ranked Wellington as the best city in the world. “Wellingtonians know we live in the best spot on earth, and now the rest of the world is hearing about it as well,” Mr Eagle said. “The international survey is a big endorsement that we’re on the right track here in Wellington “It’s also a powerful reminder of the things we need to protect for future generations: our local environment, affordable and accessible housing, ease of movement, quality public transport, and good paying jobs,” Mr Eagle stated.
