Ipad Frame - US-tech-cities-compete-with-Chinese-rivals-for-top-spot

We forecast that over the period 2020-22 Shenzhen will be the fastest growing of the world’s major cities, not only in terms of GDP growth, but also with respect to office-based employment. Shenzhen is of course primarily a tech city, and in the US it is also the tech cities of Seattle, San Francisco and especially San Jose which stand out. Within Europe, London is the strongest performer in 2022, but over the full period 2020-22 it is Warsaw that leads.

What you will learn:

  • Over the period 2020-22 Shenzhen is the fastest growing of the world’s major cities in terms of GDP and office-based employment.
  • In the US the tech cities of Seattle, San Francisco and especially San Jose stand out.
  • Within Europe, London is the strongest performer in 2022, but over the full period 2020-22 Warsaw leads.
