      Port Moresby on 'worst cities' list

      Papua New Guinea's capital Port Moresby has once again been ranked among the world's five worst cities to live in by The Economist business magazine.

      In 2004, the same survey ranked Port Moresby the worst in the world.

      Despite massive amounts of foreign aid, relative political stability and sustained growth from a resources boom, Port Moresby is still considered one of the world's worst addresses.

      Port Moresby ranked 137 out of 140 countries, putting it one step below Nigeria's capital Lagos but one above the Algerian capital Algiers and Bangladesh's Dhaka, which shared the 138th spot.

      National Capital District Governor Powes Parkop did not return AAP's calls regarding the ranking.

      The Economist Intelligence Unit's latest liveability survey released on Wednesday ranked Zimbabwe's capital Harare as the world's worst city, while this year's Winter Olympic host Vancouver was ranked the most liveable city on the planet.

      Australia's Melbourne was third most liveable, with Sydney in seventh place and Perth and Adelaide equal eighth.

      New Zealand's Auckland was placed 10th, and its capital Wellington 23rd.

      The Economist's assessment is based on "perceptions of development levels to assigning a hardship allowance as part of expatriate relocation packages" and focuses on stability, health care, education, infrastructure and culture and environment.
