Makati 4th safest Southeast Asian city — online survey
MAKATI City ranked 4th in the top 10 safest cities in Southeast Asia, an international online research group said.
Three other Philippine cities — Davao, Iloilo and Cebu — were also on the list, according to a survey conducted by Numbeo’s Safety Index 2019.
Last year, Makati ranked 5th with a Safety Index rate of 59.48 points, the Numbeo survey said.
Also in the top 10 safest cities in Southeast Asia were Chiang Mai (Thailand) with a rating of 77.88; Davao (Philippines), 72.50; Singapore, 72.30; Hanoi (Vietnam), 59.48; Penang (Malaysia), 58.66; Bangkok (Thailand), 58.31; Iloilo (Philippines), 55.86; Bali (Indonesia), 51.40; and Cebu (Philippines), 50.34.
Makati City Mayor Mar-Len Abigail Binay said the city consistently implements programs to improve the quality of life of its residents through increased police visibility and other investments in disaster response and security.
She cited the importance of the support of the local and national governments to the security sector in maintaining peace and order for socioeconomic progress.
“We regard national government agencies such as the Philippine National Police and the Bureau of Fire Protection as our indispensable partners in keeping Makati safe for residents, the business community and all other stakeholders. As the financial center of the Philippines, we put a premium on safety and security to remain as the premier investment destination, where businesses can rapidly and continuously flourish,” the mayor said.
Numbeo’s numbers also showed a low crime rate in Makati with 40.52. This is significantly lower than the crime rates in Manila and Quezon City with 64.82 and 61.19, respectively.
Its data is based on a survey involving netizens who have visited its website.
Apart from crime rates, Numbeo gives data on each city’s or country’s cost of living, property prices, health care, pollution, traffic, quality of life and tourism.
