Oxford is the greatest city in the UK for economic growth, according to a new index.
The PWC Good Growth for Cities 2016 index found that Oxford and Reading continued to dominate the top of their rankings, opening up a substantial gap between them and the rest of the field.
The report explained:
This reflects continued improvement across a range of measures in each of these cities, such as jobs, income and skills, during the recovery from the financial crisis. It is also indicative of the health of the business sector in these cities, which results in strong performance in the revised ‘new business start-up’ variable.
Edinburgh and Aberdeen featured in the top ten highest performing cities within the index.
