City Rated Poorly By Expatriate Parents

Peter So – Oct 09, 2008 – SCMP

Expatriates give Hong Kong a low rating as a place to raise children because of its high costs and limited outdoor lifestyle, a survey has found.

The city ranked 11th among 14 places covered in the poll, conducted by HSBC (SEHK: 0005, announcements, news) between February and April. Only the Netherlands, Britain and the United Arab Emirates finished below Hong Kong.

The survey asked 2,155 expats, in more than 48 countries, about their experiences of raising children while living and working abroad.
