10 Cidades que mais crescem no Mundo (2011/2012)

10 Cities that more grow in the World (2011/2012)


10. SHENYANG - CHINA

One cool fact: Of the 200 largest metros in the world, Shenyang had the fastest income growth in 2011.
From the report: 11.6%: Shenyang's GDP-per-capita growth in 2011 was more than twice as fast as Santiago, the next city on the list.


9. SANTIAGO - CHILE



One cool fact: Santiago's employment growth was twice as fast as other Latin American powerhouses, like Buenos Aires and Lima.
From the report: "Tourism is Santiago’s third-largest industry, accounting for 16 percent of the metro’s output."


8. SHENZHEN - CHINA
10 :: Shenyang, China

One cool fact: Shenzhen was the only city to place in the top five in the Brookings Metro Monitor before, during, and after the recession.
From the report: "Income in Shenzhen has multiplied at least fourfold over the last 15 years."


7. ISTANBUL - TURKEY


One cool fact: One year ago, Istanbul ranked first in Brookings' analysis of the world's most dynamic cities.
From the report: "Three Turkish metro areas (Izmir, Ankara, and Istanbul) cracked the top 10, headlining strong performance in that national economy."


6. ANKARA - TURKEY


One cool fact: Some economists predict that rising credit throughout Turkey might result in a hard landing in 2012, especially for its capital city of Ankara.
From the report: Ankara's income growth rate in the last year is better than twice its rate between 1993 and 2007.


5. HANGZHOU - CHINA

One cool fact: The eastern Chinese city has tripled its GDP in the last eight years.
From the report: Hangzhou, along with Shenzhen and Shanghai, dramatically outpaced China's disappointing overall growth in 2011.


4. IZMIR -TURKEY

One cool fact: The third most populous city in Turkey, Izmir is growing faster than Istanbul and Ankara, but is also poorer by GDP-per-capita.
From the report: Izmir is one of a handful of major global metros, including Houston and Calgary, that overwhelmingly rely on commodities to fuel their income growth, according to the Brookings report. That could spell trouble if a slowdown in China and other Asian countries leads to falling prices for commodities in 2012.


3. JIDDAH - SAUDI ARABIA


One cool fact: Ever heard of Jiddah? It's the largest port on the Red Sea, and the largest city in Saudi Arabia, after Riyadh.
From the report: "In the last 15 years, incomes in Moscow and Mumbai have doubled, and risen 50 percent or more in Buenos Aires, Jiddah, and Kuala Lumpur."


2. RIYADH - SAUDI ARABIA
 

One cool fact: No major metro's income improved faster in the last two years than Riyadh.
From the report: As long as the world runs on oil, Saudi Arabia's capital will have revenue to plow into its public sector, infrastructure, and commercial development.


1. SHANGHAI - CHINA
 

One cool fact: Shanghai's economy is the size of Finland.
From the report: Shanghai won gold in the Brookings report by winning a double silver in income and employment growth. "Only Shenyang achieved faster income growth, and only Riyadh achieved faster employment growth, than Shanghai last year."
