Christian Kethels: Moscow became competitor of the largest world cities
The chief economist of The Boston Consulting Group, Christian Ketels, believes that Moscow has changed significantly in recent years and today it can make a strong competition to other megacities of the world.
“As for Moscow, the city has changed a lot in recent years. It should be noted that Russia has radically strengthened its position in the global ranking of competitiveness of Doing Business, making a jump from 123 to 35 in the period 2011-2018. In many respects it is the merit of Moscow, whose share is 70% in calculating the rating. Now we can say that Moscow has become a competitor to the largest world cities, “the expert said.
