London voted best city for business

Published on 14/10/2009

For the 20th year in a row London remains Europe’s best city for business. The capital was rated ahead of Paris and Frankfurt in Cushman & Wakefield’s annual European Cities Monitor report and follows another recent survey, which rated London ahead of its arch rivals New York, Hong Kong and Singapore and Zurich as a top global financial centre.

London was ranked the number one city for access to qualified staff and markets, for internal transport and external links and the number of languages spoken.

The Mayor said:"Yet again London leads the way as the number one city for business. All these recent surveys make it crystal clear that the world’s attention is focussed on our capital, offering it an extremely bright future. We are working tirelessly to promote London as the top business and tourist destination and will continue to set the benchmark.

“We are pushing ahead with major infrastructure improvements, like Crossrail and the Olympics, and delivering programmes to increase the skills of our workforce so that companies investing in London have a pool of talent ready to employ.  Therefore I urge all international and European businesses who want a base in the world’s best city for business to get in touch”.
