Manchester Is Europe’s 3rd City

The Colliers International Cities of Influence TLC index has named Manchester as one of Europe’s top influential cities. The combination of skilled and emerging talent, an accessible location, the affordable cost of living as well as the city’s work within the Northern Powerhouse has given Manchester a growing recognition and reputation on an international scale.

In his interview with MEN Business Andrew McFarlane, Director and head of the Manchester office of Colliers International, commented: “Manchester has worked hard to build its reputation as an international city. Over the past 20-plus years it has steadily grown and developed into the global player that it is today and that momentum is still building as Manchester cements its place at the heart of the Northern Powerhouse.

“What is encouraging about this report is that what has been clear to many in Manchester for several years is increasingly being recognised by a global audience. Manchester’s best days lie ahead.”

The top 20 influential European Cities identified by Colliers International are:
1. London
2. Paris
3. Manchester
4. Stockholm
5. Dublin
6. Munich
7. Amsterdam
8. Madrid
9. Vienna
10. Prague
