Singapore is the fifth most expensive expat city in the world: ECA International

Hong Kong plunged coming from its top position in 2022’s positions by ECA to end up being the second most costly city. It was outperformed by New York this particular year, noting completion of Hong Kong’s four-year regime on top.

“Singapore’s progress is noteworthy. Raised interest for rental dwelling in the Lion City, driven by factors such as the previously loosening of Covid-19 restrictions compared to other essential places in the region, was not matched by matching increases in the supply of suitable accommodation,” says ECA International’s local director of Asia Lee Quane.

As a whole, cities in the Asia Pacific region saw their positions tumble this year, yet South Korea’s Seoul as well as Myanmar’s Yangon threw the trend to climb a few places. Seoul climbed up one place to nine in the positions, as well as Yangon rose 4 places to 167.

“Costs for products and also services in Hong Kong increased at multi-year highs, revealing that the city was not spared from the rush of rising cost of living we have actually viewed all over the world in the previous year,” claims Quane. However, the city fell this year since the rise in costs of everyday items and also services was solidified by falls in accommodation expenses, he includes.

Singapore has advanced 8 positions to come to be the 5th most pricey city in the world for expatriates. This was among the findings of the current expense of living research released by ECA International.

A rise in rental prices in Seoul, resulted in by a tightening of rental supply, was the hidden factor sustaining the higher expense of living. While in Yangon, the surge was because of ongoing socio-political issues creating considerable inflation for everyday goods and services.
