The latest edition of the Global Cities Investment Monitor, published annually for the last decade by the Greater Paris Investment Agency in association with KPMG and OpinionWay, saw Paris moving up in the standings.
Paris was ranked third this year, up one place, in the list of the most attractive cities for businesses after London and New York, leapfrogging Shanghai, and ahead of Berlin in eighth. Paris also remained third for overall image, after New York and London.
The criteria considered most important by the international investors polled were political and legal stability, availability of skilled human resources, market accessibility and size, and infrastructure. Investors saw Paris as the second most attractive city in the world for quality of life, and also viewed infrastructure quality and a burgeoning startup scene as key advantages.
