City and regional economic outlook
National-level economic analysis provides only a partial guide to the dynamics unfolding in the world’s urban centres. Our unique city and regional services provide decision-makers with the necessary data and in-depth insights to navigate the new economic geography.

This ensures that developments in the global economy, such as the strength of world trade and investment cycles, and domestic factors such as government policy, are reflected in the outlook for individual cities and regions.

Tale of five cities—risers and fallers in the urban league table
Cities are the primary centres for driving economic growth around the world. Today, the urban economic landscape is dominated by advanced city economies like New York, Tokyo, and London. But as growth continues to surge in Asia, the region’s cities will climb through the ranks to rival the world’s largest city economies.
