The Philippine National Police on Tuesday applauded a survey that named the Philippines as among the best countries to live and work.

“This only shows that the continuing peace and order campaign of the government significantly contributed in creating a secure environment where our fellowmen and even foreigners feel safe to work, live, and do business,” PNP chief Gen. Oscar Albayalde said.

A Forbes article cited the 2019 HSBC Expat’s annual survey that ranked the Philippines as the 24th best place to work and live. The survey was conducted on 18,000 expats across 163 countries using three main metrics: living, family life, and career opportunity.

The Philippines ranked one place behind the United States, which placed 23rd, and ahead of China, which ranked 26th.

“All these surveys and data indicate a positive outlook of our peace and order situation and an affirmation of our accomplishments in the campaign against criminality, illegal drugs, and corruption,” Albayalde said.
