Australia has come a long way since I was a kid.
We’re no longer a big country a long way away from everywhere else.
Well…we are in fact a big country a long way away from everywhere else, but now we have 25 million people, we’re an economic powerhouse and a financial hub and we have 2 international super cities that eclipse most others.
In fact Sydney and Melbourne rank highly in JLL’s City Momentum Index 2018 as being best positioned for long term success.
- Sydney ranks #14
- Melbourne ranks #17
The JLL Index covers 131 major established and emerging markets and tracks a broad range of factors to identify cities that have the strongest short-term socio-economic and commercial real estate momentum, and those that have the future-proofing capacity for longer-term success and looks at key factors such as the number of tech firms, education, environment, transparency, infrastructure, and international patents.
Here are the top 20 Cities
|#1||San Francisco||United States|
|#2||Silicon Valley||United States|
|#3||New York||United States|
|#6||Los Angeles||United States|
|#10||San Diego||United State|
Interestingly, no cities from China, Latin America, Africa, or the Middle East make this first list.
