A new survey showed Beirut ranks as the world's eighth most expensive city in terms of the high cost of living for expatriates. According to EuroCost International's 2017 cost-of-living survey for expatriates, Beirut was ranked in the eighth place globally, compared to ninth place in 2016 and 11th place in 2015 . The survey attributed the elevated cost of living in Beirut to the high rental rates in the capital.It added that four new cities, which are Bangui, the capital city of the Central African Republic (23rd place), Oslo (24th place), Taipei (25th place) and Amsterdam (30th place), joined the top 30 list last year.
