According to a Singapore government-controlled research institute, Asia Competitiveness Institute (ACI), Singapore ranks 7th in the world for being the most liveable city.
However, ACI is a research centre under a government-affiliated education institute named after the recently-deceased Singapore dictator, Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy (LKYSPP). Heading the ACI is former PAP Minister George Yeo and a list of directors of corporations with vested business interests with the Singapore PAP government.
In August, the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) published a survey putting Singapore 46th in its ranking of most liveable city. You may view EIU’s report here. Singapore’s international rankings may have been too embarrassing for the ruling party PAP, and the government is coming out with its surveys and reports to skew public opinions of the authoritarian state.
