  • Many Asia Pacific cities saw recovery well underway in 2020. We have already revised up our estimates for GDP in both 2020 and 2021.
  • Among individual major cities, Paris has tended to move broadly in line with Europe as a whole, whereas London and the UK have followed their own path.
  • But the dramatic revision has been to prospects for US cities, thanks to the election of President Biden.
