Auckland tops global ranking of most liveable cities

From Morning Report, 8:11 am on 10 June 2021

Auckland has topped a global ranking of the most liveable cities and Wellington is 4th.

The new survey of 140 cities by the Economist Intelligence Unit has given Auckland the top spot thanks largely to the early containment of Covid-19.

It compares to 2019 when Auckland came 12th and Wellington was 25th.

Economist Intelligence Unit industry director Ana Nicholls, who helped to write the report, spoke to Philippa Tolley.
