Key Themes for Cities in 2023: Asia Pacific, Europe, North America

As the world economy faces economic slowdown, with many advanced nations experiencing recession, one key theme for cities in 2023 is bound to be the existence of safe havens: cities whose growth will be less damaged than most, or which may prove to be more resilient than their national economies. Possible factors include their industrial structures, the resilience of their consumer sectors and of their housing markets, and likely trends in their visitor economies. In this webinar we explore these issues, and identify from a city perspective what to look out for as 2023 unfolds.
