    I would have thought that Singapore would be ranked higher because of it is one of the world’s leading commerical hubs with the 4th largest financial center along with the world’s 5th biggest and modern port. Singapore has a global and deversified economy with a manufacturing base that contributes over 25% to the GMP.
    I would think Singapore would certainly be listed in the top 5 in terms of Commericial realestate.

      The City Momentum Index (CMI) aims to capture “speed of change” and to identify the characteristics of the world’s most dynamic cities. The fact that Singapore features in the Top 10 of the CMI is certainly testimony to the city-state’s attributes as a globally connected and diversified commercial hub that is punching well about its economic weight. As with any City Index, we would encourage readers to use the CMI as a general benchmark of dynamism – and in this regard the Index highlights Singapore’s position as one of the world’s most dynamic cities.
