The 'Global Business Cities Index in 2022' ranked Cairo just ahead of Algiers and Johannesburg.
A report by Statista, a global business data portal, has ranked Cairo as the top business city in Africa. The 'Global Business Cities Index in 2022' looks at 200 cities from around the world, and ranks them according to four subindices: Economy (the city's level of development), Society (population development and standard of living), Operational Environment (infrastructure and logistics), and Charisma (tourism and culture).
While Cairo performed the best amongst its African counterparts, it was followed closely by Algiers and then Johannesburg. Casablanca is the fourth best business city on the continent, right after Nairobi, Cape Town, Accra and Lagos.
