ISPG | International Strategy Partners Group has completed “Competitiveness rating of 40 cities of the countries of Central Asia and the Caucasus”.
Taking into account that all CA and Caucasus countries have gained their independence in a relative recent times, we would like to disclose the results of our analysis and provide insight to the achievements of main regional cities.
The rating is the First in-depth study on competitiveness of cities of CA and Caucasus and their attractiveness for doing business, living and investing. The study focuses on analyzing 40 cities from 8 countries of Central Asia and the Caucasus along 14 indicators grouped into 5 main areas: technological development and human capital, economic and trade potential, as well as environmental emissions and crime rates. The analysis is based on official statistical data from authorized government sources by the end of 2018.
In 2018, the population of 40 cities studied amounted to 21.3 million people with a total GRP of $275.9 billion. This study is the first in-depth study of cities in Central Asia and the Caucasus and is of great interest for further distribution in countries of the region and abroad.
