Portugal among safest and most peaceful
It’s not all about the good weather, cheap cost of living, real estate and low tax.
Peace and safety are becoming an increasing important reason for people’s decision of moving or traveling to Portugal.
Portugal is one of the most peaceful countries in the world, having climbed to third in the 2017 Global Peace Index.
This comes as latest statistics show crime in Portugal has been dropping extensively since 2008, making it one of the safest countries in the world.
Portugal has moved up two positions to third in the overall Global Peace Index ranking, thereby consolidating its standing as one of the most peaceful countries in the world.
The country had last year already recorded an impressive showing when it was placed fifth on the list.
The Global Peace Index ranks 163 countries according to their domestic and international conflicts, safety and security and degree of militarization.
