WEF – the most powerful cities in the world

No Comments

London comes top – again – in this annual list of the world’s most powerful cities.

The 2018 top five remains unchanged from last year – London, New York, Tokyo, Paris and Singapore.

Winners and losers

One of the biggest changes recorded in the GPCI has been the rise of North American cities and the decline in some big names from Asia. Since last year, Beijing has fallen from 13th to 23rd in the rankings due to weaker performance in the accessibility measure, which looks at a city’s connectedness and transport networks. Meanwhile, Shanghai fell from 15th to 26th. This was due to a reduced score for its economy.
