London has been crowned the most popular city in the world for work
London has been crowned the most popular city in the world for work in the biggest ever study of workforce migration trends, but the popularity of the UK as a whole has dropped. In the giant survey of 366,000 overseas workers from nearly 200 countries, the capital beats New York, Berlin and Barcelona as the destination of choice, retaining the top spot it secured in 2014 when the study was first carried out. The Boston Consulting Group (BCG) study says that London’s prominence as a global financial, business and cultural capital does not appear to have been dimmed by Brexit.
The news of London’s dominance comes only a few months after it retained its number one spot in the Global Financial Centres Index, which showed the City successfully fighting off competition from New York, Hong Kong and Singapore for the most competitive and attractive business environment.
