Consulting services of the leading international financial institutions in the first half of the year brought the final score of cities in developed and developing countries. Criteria for the assessment were: intellectual capital and innovative development, the level of favorable business of big city life, the development of the wholesale and retail networks, informational, social, cultural and transport infrastructure; attraction for tourists, and some other additional criteria. In first place for the development, as well as last year, were in New York and London (the first is a little ahead). The top five also included Toronto, Paris and Stockholm. No city has not had a leader on all counts, but only on the amount of points put up by analysts. In the category of city hub in the top five included Asian cities - Beijing and Shanghai. Just got rating 27 cities, the development of which affect either municipal policy or general welfare of the country.

 

Long-term forecast for up to 12 years (until 2025), suggests several scenarios are possible for specific cities with existing preconditions for development in a particular direction. Successful in the application of technology and innovation, as well as the development of the transport system are seen in New York, Tokyo, London, Paris and Seoul. Quality of life other cities can beat San Francisco, Sydney, Paris and Stockholm. In the case of the protectionist policies of developed all of these cities may remain the same. Depending on the fluctuations of the world economy and the level of economic interaction with peripherals and other megacities, as well as on changes in population growth through natural migration and demographic indicators will be stronger or weaker position of the individual city in the ranking. Important role to play, and state policy towards cities, because now a significant part of the capital needs of financial and intellectual "injections" of up to one third of GDP annually.
