Our annual health check of the largest cities and towns asks: does London help or hinder other UK city economies?
Now in its seventh year, Cities Outlook 2014 is the authoritative economic index of the 64 largest cities and towns in the UK. Cities Outlook 2014 sets out how different cities are set to fare in the year ahead. Now that the UK is staging a recovery, which cities are leading the way? And are any still suffering stagnation?
Cities Outlook 2014’s special focus is on London and its relationship to other cities. It shows that the Capital is leading the economic recovery, and its longstanding economic strength continues to attract talented workers from across the country. But the report also highlights that many of our largest cities are also showing green shoots of growth, with Liverpool, Manchester, Nottingham and Leeds all delivering large numbers of private sector jobs, while cities like Cambridge, Reading and Bristol perform well on skills and employment.
