In an increasingly globalized and freely-trading world economy, the number of economically-important cities across the globe is growing rapidly. As developing regions continue to experience rapid and unsustainable economic growth the makeup of the global marketplace, and the relative importance of different regions, is changing constantly.
Germany has always had a very stable economy, and this is reflected in the consistent - if very slight - GDP growth in its major cities. It took a moderate hit in 2008-09 during the Great Recession, but recovered quickly.
Most major German cities are very similar in terms of both per capita GDP and per capita GDP growth rates. The country enjoys a strong workplace culture and so has developed a resilient, strong economy.
While most European countries are experiencing slowing population growth or population decline, most German cities have experienced moderate population growth. This has been due primarily to the recent influx of migrants from Syria into Germany.
