Global Cities Momentum Index, 2016

Nairobi, Kenya moves up ranks, still only African city to feature in the list.

JLL | 19th January 2016



Quote:
Highlights of the CMI Top 20 include:

Strong momentum of ‘Established World Cities’, as well as their ‘Challengers’. London (1), New York (7) and Tokyo (14) remain on this year’s list, while others such as Shanghai (6), Sydney (8) and Seoul (19) are increasingly competing for global reach and influence. The presence of the ‘Established’ and ‘Challenger’ cities on the 2016 CMI Top 20 reflects their highly globalized economies, strong infrastructure and deep concentrations of corporations, capital and talent. They are also looking to future-proof their economies by executing bold urban transformations.

Increasing momentum in U.S. ‘New World Cities’. This year’s CMI Top 20 includes the Silicon Valley area (2), Boston (5), San Francisco (10), Seattle (13) and Austin (16). Representing a larger share than last year’s CMI, these U.S. cities are dynamic technology centers that are seeking to proactively use real estate to foster sustainability and liveability.

Innovation driving ‘Agile Higher-Value Emerging Cities’. Bangalore (4) and Shenzhen (12) are home to some of the world’s fastest-growing tech companies, and Nairobi (11) is also making a concerted effort to move up the value chain and improve global connectivity.

Smaller cities achieving global reach. The relatively smaller cities of Dublin (3), Austin (16) and Auckland (20) are gaining rapid momentum and competing in highly contested global markets. Although they have some of the smallest populations in the CMI, they are among the most dynamic city economies globally and have achieved global reach without significant economies of scale.

Asia Pacific showing strength. India increased its representation in the Top 20 with Bangalore (4) joined by Hyderabad (17), both of which are growing rapidly and taking steps to build out their infrastructure and foster high-tech economies. China’s cities of Shanghai (6), Beijing (9), Shenzhen (12) and Nanjing (15) are building the foundations for new forms of economic activity in terms of innovation, infrastructure and connectivity. Finally, Australasian cities continue to exhibit strong momentum with Sydney (8), Melbourne (18) and Auckland (20) in the Top 20.

Nairobi is booming! How's the situation on the ground? Is it a city where it's possible to walk around and visit all these developments?

Yeah, you can walk around and visit the developments

However in areas like Upper Hill they are still working on the sidewalks and roads. But since the area isnt extremely active vehicle wise, I believe u can manage.

Kenya’s Nairobi ranked Africa’s top FDI destination
CNBC Africa
February 2016


Quote:
Kenya’s capital, Nairobi, is attracting huge investment and industry experts reckon the government is working to ensure the trend is sustained.

A recent report by investment monitoring platform, FDI Markets ranked Nairobi as Africa's top foreign direct investment destination as it saw inflows surging by 37 per cent in 2015.

The country’s ministry of Investment, Trade and Industry is also reviewing draft regulations on special economic zones in efforts to promote export growth in the country.
