MasterCard Wordwide announced it's Emerging Markets Research ResultsBack to list
Emerging markets are becoming increasingly important investment and business centers. Responding to this reality and providing guidance in today's economic environment is a new study from MasterCard Worldwide, the Worldwide Centers of Commerce(TM): Emerging Markets Index.
The Index provides valuable insights into the 65 leading cities driving growth within more than 30 emerging markets. The Index evaluates 65 cities on eight dimensions related to their business climate, political environment, economic growth, commercial connectivity, quality of life and other areas, and explores the compelling global and regional economic trends that distinguish these cities as future development hubs.
Novosibirsk was ranked 62nd out of 65 leading cities. On 61st and 63rd places there are Caracas (Venezuela) and Nairobi (Kenya) respectively. Other Russian cities listed in the research: Moscow (14th place), St. Petersburg (41st) and Yekaterinburg (59th).
Surely, it's benefit for Novosibirs to be in that Top-65 list. But the fact it takes only 62nd place and was passed by it's main rival Yekaterinburg is defenetly a sign for city's authorities. Nevertheless, Novosibirsk proved again it's economical potential and the right to be in the list of top-3 Russian non-capital cities.
