Cities under strain: European, Asia Pacific and North American cities face multiple challenges

In our latest quarterly round-up on world city prospects, Richard Holt our Director of Global Cities Research set out our views on the outlook for 2023 and beyond, across many Asia Pacific, US and Canadian majors. And Lawrence Harper-Scott from our European cities forecasting team put those cities under scrutiny. With Covid-19 still a rumbling issue in China, the Ukraine war having powerful impacts in Europe, and recession anxieties in the US and Canada, now is the time to think hard about 2023 prospects.

Richard is a key member of our cities team, working on both our standard forecasting and scenario services and on bespoke consultancy projects for individual clients.

His career has included spells in New York and Birmingham, England, with a variety of economic consultancies and forecasters.
