  • Moscow was recognized as the leading city of the future in Eastern Europe

    According to the study of Foreign Direct Investment Intelligence (the special division of the Financial Times Group), Moscow ranked the sixth in the rating of the cities of the future and the first - in Eastern Europe. The total number of 301 European cities and 150 regions were assessed.


    In the ranking of the cities of the future for 2018-2019, prepared by Foreign Direct Investment Intelligence (fDi Intelligence), Moscow took the sixth place among European cities. Experts assessed the economic potential, cost-effectiveness, level of business environment development, transport accessibility. In total, there were about one hundred criteria, including the gross domestic product of cities, life expectancy, the number of people with higher education, the development of road and rail infrastructure, the availability of office space rental, the Internet and many other factors. 


    For many years, London has been the leader in this rating, but fDi Intelligence experts believe that the situation may radically change next year due to Britain's withdrawal from the European Union. Dublin that now takes the second place, can change the position. Paris, Amsterdam and Munich also follow before Moscow. The top ten also included Frankfurt, Zurich, Cambridge and Helsinki.




    Eastern European city of the future


    Comparing the cities of Eastern Europe, experts put Moscow in the first place. The capitals of Poland, Romania, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary followed next. This means that, according to experts, nowadays Moscow has the greatest investment potential. And as far as the European capitals concerns, Moscow took the fifth place.


    Human capital and quality of life


    If we talk about ensuring the quality of life, then the Russian capital in this indicator is the second only after London. In the city, the social and educational sphere is actively developing, transport accessibility is increasing, and new opportunities for self-development are emerging. Moscow helps young professionals to find themselves and provides comfortable life for older people. The average life expectancy since 2010 has increased by three years. Today, this figure exceeds 77 years, which is comparable to the level of such European cities as Paris or London.


    Favorable conditions for business development


    Experts recognized that Moscow is worthy to take the fifth place among the European cities, friendly for business. The innovative infrastructure of the capital includes about 1,500 objects, where entrepreneurs can place production or get support. These are techno parks, coworking spaces, innovative enterprises, service centers for business and other organizations.


    Economic potential


    Moscow has much to grow: it was on the sixth position in the rating for assessing the economic potential after London, Dublin, Paris, Amsterdam and Helsinki. The volume of investments in the Russian capital over the past seven years has grown by 70 percent.


    fDi Intelligence (the special division of the Financial Times Group) makes ratings of cities and regions of the world in terms of their future development within the next two years. The forecast for 2018-2019 was prepared on the basis of own FDI bases and open sources. 301 cities and 150 regions were estimated. Each category such as the economic potential of cities, cost effectiveness, the level of development of the business environment, transport accessibility and human capital - was divided into subcategories and scored from 0 to 10. The score in all categories allowed to determine the final rating of the cities of the future.
