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.
The Russian economy has enjoyed considerable economic growth in recent years, but between 2009-13 the top cities suffered considerable declines and the country was slower than most of Europe to recover from the Great Recession. It suffered major losses in 2015 as oil prices hit 70 year historical lows.
Most Russian cities are expected to have rapid growth in per capita GDP in the future and the country's extensive oil economy is likely to provide a welcome boost to the performance of the economy.
While population growth has been historically quite low across Russian cities, considerable growth is expected in the future particularly in smaller cities such as Krasnodar as the government increases investment in smaller cities.
