This index evaluates and ranks 44 major cities worldwide according to their comprehensive power to attract people, capital, and enterprises from around the world by measuring 6 functions: economy, research and development, cultural interaction, livability, environment, and accessibility.

The top four cities remain unchanged from last year, with London, New York, Tokyo and Paris topping the list.


Tokyo broke into the top 10 for Livability due to an improvement in the Total Working Hours which helped put the city in the top 10 in all categories except Environment mainly because of the relatively low score in Commitment to Climate Action. Much attention will be focused on whether Tokyo, like London, can continue to build on its score before and after hosting the Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2020.
