The Stavanger region, composed of fifteen municipalities in southwestern Norway, is the third largest region in Norway. The region has a common employment, housing and service market with 322,000 inhabitants. According to the UN HDI (Human Development Index) rankings, Norway is the best country to live in. When our region has been selected as the best region in Norway several times, can we say (tongue-in-cheek) that we the best region in the world?
