ECA International is a service provider that advises companies who employ expatriates around the world. Every year they rank cities that are most expatriate-friendly. In order to do this, ECA rates 254 cities using criteria such as climate, air quality, access to medical care, public transport, social life and entertainment, the infrastructure, safety and finally political tension. The results enable companies to calculate remuneration for expatriates and their families.
