Nairobi ranked sixth most commercially active city in the world

Nairobi has been ranked the sixth most commercially active city in the world according to JLL’s city Momentum Index.

The index tracks urban economies and real-estate markets that are currently undergoing the most rapid expansion.

Nairobi is the only city outside of Asia Pacific as this year’s ranking finds the fastest urban growth continuing to shift away from the West to the East.

However according to the index even in Nairobi, there is a strong Asian influence, with significant amounts of investment from China, particularly focused on infrastructure projects.
