The Hong Kong government’s head-in-the sand approach to air quality continues to reap dividends for other cities in the region.

Singapore is the most livable city for Asian expatriates, ranking well ahead of Hong Kong, where the air quality is now among the worst in the world, according to human resources consultancy ECA International. “Air pollution remains a major issue [in Hong Kong],” Lee Quane, ECA’s regional director for Asia, said. “It has the third worst score for this of any Asian city, after Beijing and New Delhi, and is up among some of the worst locations in the world for air quality including Santiago, Mexico City and Cairo.”
