A survey of 13,000 expatriates places Portugal as the fifth best country in the world to live and work, ahead of neighbors like Spain and Italy. Greece is in the bottom ten.

Portugal is the fifth best country in the world to live and work, according to the Expat Insider, a survey conducted annually by InterNations with 13,000 expatriates from 166 nationalities.

Respondents consider the country as the number one overall, with regard to the "friendly attitude" towards foreigners, a factor that contributes greatly to the fifth place in the world ranking.

Portugal is ahead of neighboring Spain, which "closes" the top ten, led this year by Bahrain. Ahead of Portugal are still Costa Rica, Mexico and Taiwan, which ranked first in last year's ranking.

Already the list of the worst places to live and work includes countries like Brazil, Greece, Saudi Arabia and Turkey.

The survey, which aims to bring together the views of thousands of executives, skilled workers, students and retired people living in the country of origin, also shows that the United Kingdom (in 54th position) and the United States (at 43 .ª) now have a worse reputation.

Since the referendum on Brexit and the election of Donald Trump, the two countries are considered less friendly and less politically stable.

Australia, which was in the top ten last year, was the country that most fell in 2017, moving to 34th place.

One of the favorite places for expatriates to work is China, where two-thirds of respondents are happy with their careers. Even so, the country is in the 55th position in the general ranking due to the poor quality of life.
