London has been named the world’s most attractive city in the Global Power City Index(GPCI) 2017, published today by The Mori Memorial Foundation’s Institute for Urban Strategies, a research institute established by Mori Building, a leading urban developer in Tokyo.

The GPCI 2017 ranked London as number one for the sixth year in a row, highlighting its strong cultural offering, excellent culinary experience and accessibility. The report ranked 44 major cities across six key measures including: economy, research and development, culture, accessibility, the environment and livability.

London performed well across all areas, ranking ahead of other cities such as New York, Tokyo, Paris and Singapore. The UK capital topped the ranking for culture, with overseas tourists making a record 19.1 million visits to the city in 2016.

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: "With its unrivalled talent pool, the presence of a huge number of global businesses across all sectors, and access to regulators, business support services and vital European markets, London is the best place in the world to do business. What’s more, the capital's cultural attractions, food scene and sporting calendar are world-leading – just a few of the reasons London is such an attractive place to live and work."

According to a separate study by Oxford Economics for London & Partners, London’s economic growth is expected to be stronger than many other European cities. London’s GDP growth is set to be 2.4% a year until 2021, outperforming a number of other major European cities including Paris, Frankfurt and Berlin.
