The World’s Most Competitive Cities

Oxford Economics’ custom research was recently featured in the third edition of the World’s Most Competitive Cities (published by Conway). The report examines the economic fundamentals supporting direct foreign investment projects in the world’s most competitive cities. Oxford’s leading location strategist Dan Levine provided cutting-edge insights into emerging industries and metros, drawing on Oxford Economics’ best-in-class regional research and forecasts.

Oxford Economics insights span the globe, assessing a wide array of cities, each facing unique economic opportunities and challenges. In Berlin, for example, Levine cites the 44,000 new companies launching in the city annually, the highly-educated workforce, and the fast-growing information and communication sector (page 18). In Abu Dhabi, Levine assesses economic prospects in response to low global oil prices and the city’s effort to attract manufacturing (page 32). In São Paulo, Levine dissects the downward pressure on the country’s and city’s economies and notes the resulting cost advantages for companies seeking to establish a Latin American regional headquarters (page 38). In addition, Levine also assesses the competitive advantages of cities like Barcelona (page 44), Nairobi (page 66), Prague (page 72), Dublin (page 96), London (page 106), and Lagos (page 110).

The world most competitive cities are almost always the economic engines driving growth in their respective national economies. Let Oxford Economics put these insights to work for you.
