Believe it or not, the Philippines is included among the top 50 safest countries in the world.
The latest data was gathered based on the 2020 Global Law and Order Report by international analytics firm Gallup.
The Asian country got a score of 84 in the worldwide survey and has tied with Australia, New Zealand, Poland, and Serbia.
In 2019, the country had an 82 index score for the world.
“The higher the score, the higher the proportion of the population that reports feeling safe,” Gallup wrote in a statement.
Presidential Peace Adviser Carlito Galvez Jr. has welcome the results of the survey.
“We are glad to be recognized as among the safest countries in the world. Thanks to our law enforcers, peace workers, and everyone who has made a commitment to peace, we are moving forward as a peaceful, progressive, and resilient nation,” he said.
Singapore topped the survey with a 97 global index score.
