BANGKOK, 27 March 2014 (NNT) - Thailand ranked 2nd out of all ASEAN countries in the 2014 United Nations Human Development Index in terms of the best quality of life.

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has compiled an annual report on the Human Development Index (HDI), which is an indicator that ranks human development on several areas such as life expectancy, educational level, and income. The latest report marks the first time the index has been surveyed in the ASEAN region.

Singapore topped the index as the country with the best quality of life in the ASEAN region, closely followed by Thailand. Cambodia, meanwhile, ranked last in the index.

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon released a statement on the International Day of Happiness this year that happiness may have different meanings for different people. However, every country can agree that it means working to end conflict, poverty, and other unfortunate conditions in which so many fellow human beings struggle with in their day-to-day life.
