4 Asian Cities In The 2015 Smart Cities Ranking

The CIMI (Cities In Motion Index) , is a composite index that assesses the level of development of 148 cities worldwide using 66 indicators which cover 10 distinct dimensions: human capital, social cohesion, economy, public management, governance, environment, mobility and transport, urban planning, international outreach and, finally, technology.

According to, CIMI 2015 Report, London again became the undisputed leader in the rankings of the smartest cities in the world. It is followed by New York, which grabbed second place, and Seoul, in third. Rounding out the top 10, we see five other European cities — Paris, Amsterdam, Vienna, Geneva and Munich — and four Asian ones — Tokyo, Seoul, Hong Kong  and Singapore, the latter of which advanced 11 positions over the course of just two years.

Of the top-25 list, 15 are European, five are North American, four are Asian and one is Oceanian. Urban development in Latin America and Africa still has much room for improvement, as Latin America’s top city, Santiago, is ranked 86th and Africa’s top city, Cape Town, is ranked 117th.
